Question about 1996 Toyota Camry
Had the same issue...pretty strange! The keyless entry light relay is the problem. This is what flashes the light when you lock the doors, and It is stuck in the on position.
In my 1997 camry it is located under the dash on the drivers side. There is an number of relays on a backplane straight up above the brake peddal. They are generally black retangular boxes about an inch in length. The bad relay in my case was the one closest to the drivers side door. How I found it was to trigger the keyless entry and listen for the click when the lights flashed.
The relay pulls straight out of the socket similar to a fuse...it will probably take some plyers though. If the lights go out when you pull the relay, you probably have the right one.
Take the relay to the dealer; or I was able to find a replacement at NAPA for about $10. Just push the new relay back into the socket, and everything will be good as new! Hope this helps!

You can do one of two things: have the dimmer switch replaced, or unplug the fuse to your parking lights every time you turn your car off.
