Re: marker lights and parking lights wont turn off

What position is the headlight switch in? It has 4 positions. At rest it is Auto, one click rearward cancels/sets the Auto feature. One click forward is Parking position. Two clicks forward is Headlight position.

If it's in the Park position, rotate it 1 click rearward.

If the Remote Start has been activated and the engine is running (and the option is set to On) the parking lights will be on until the time expires or you turn the key.

The headlight switch is turned to auto and the lights are still on even though the car is off

Re: marker lights and parking lights wont turn off

Pull the park relay under the hood. If the lights go out then swap in another relay from a headlight. If they stay off put the park relay where the headlight relay came out. If the headlight turns on then the relay is welded in the ON position and needs replaced. If the park lights turn on then the relay is being commanded to turn on, which means the BCM may be faulty or there may be a wire (or 2) shorted causing the condition.

Re: marker lights and parking lights wont turn off

only thing i would add is the park lamp relay is in the rear fuse block in the trunk. a sticky relay is a good bet.
