Question about Chevrolet Suburban
Running lights won't turn off
There is a dash panel control module which could be bad. It could also be a switch on the end of the turn signal or wherever the headlights get turned on.

SOURCE: High Beam Indicator blinking
My lights have had this problem for months. From time to time I try to fix it, but I have learned the following:
1. [EASY SOLUTION] After turning off the car and turning off the headlights, when I pull the headlight switch back (toward me) and then let go, the running lights turn off. [/EASY]
Extra information that I haven't figured out how to use yet:
2. Apparently the DRL bulbs operate through the high-beam bulbs; this is why you get the high-beam light when the DRLs are broken (or whatever) and why you can turn them off with the high-beam switch.
3. My wife took the car out for a fluid change once and said the mechanic pointed at a light on the car and said, "that bulb's out," and that if she fixed it the DRL's would work normally, but she forgot which light it was. He even told her what bulb it needed. I took it to the same place and no one knew what I was talking about.
I don't think about trying to fix this very often since I realized I could turn the lights off with the high-beam switch. I used to worry that that blinker was somehow draining the battery, but it never has (whereas I once drained a brand new battery just by leaving the interior light on all night). I hope I've helped!

would be the relay sticking allowing the power to run lights even though there is no power triggering the relay would pay to get new relay and see what happens as is commin problem

My 2002 S10 had the same problem, I pulled off the bottom of the dashboard and bottom of the steering wheel cover (around 8 bolts). There's a plug on the left side behind the cruise control/high beam stalk with several wires attached to it. Turns out some of the wires had become brittle and moving the steering wheel up and down caused them to short. The four small wires for the cruise control all broke off. I pulled out the metal pins and reattached them to the wires, worked for a while...
