It is normal for the running lights to remain on if the doors or trunk are ajar and or to remain on for a short period of time to light your way into the house.

Engine light stays on while running, low idle

You need to have the pcm scanned for fault codes. If it is newer than a 1996 model, Autozone will scan it for free and tell you the fault codes. A mechanic would go from there, based on what the codes reveal. The low idle is probably a symptom of the fault.
Anytime the MIL light stays on with the engine running, the pcm (engine computer) has detected a fault and will turn the light on. It also stores a trouble code in memory, maybe called a pending code if only recently started, but the code can be found with a hand held scanner, hooked up to the port under the dash for code retrieval.
When you have done the repairs, and the old codes erased, you will see that the engine light always turns on when the key is turned on. If there are no more problems , the light will go out very quickly after the engine is running. It is a bulb and computer check that the light is on with key on, and stays on until the engine is started.

Engine management light stays on .how do I turn it off as car runs perfectly ?

It is worth knowing what this light is trying to tell you about the car. Get a readout of the trouble code it has stored to find out, and in the same process then get the code cancelled after. In the USA Autozone will do this for you, or any mechanic.

Subaru impreza 2001 engine light turns on and car runs ruff engine light turns off car runs better

Check Engine Light turns on?

You surely know, we have had those
for 35 years on all vehicles, & if any dash
light stays on after the motor is running, you
have a vehicle problem that has to be diagnosed

Have to check for OBD Codes--not keep using it

Then component test the system that set the fault
code, to find a problem

For most people that would be at a repair shop

Brake lights stay all time without car being on

So they stay on when the car is turned off with no engine running?
I imagine this flattens your battery?
Or do they only stay on once the ignition has been turned to "on" even without the engine running?
Could be the pedal switch sticking in which case you would simply need to look under the dash behind the pedal and try and "jiggle" the switch, though if they only stay on once the ignition is on I would lean towards a bad earth for the globe socket.

First maybe try and disconnect the pedal switch to ensure that its breaking the connection properly and turning your lights on and off.

Depending how handy you are, you could remove the tail light and run an additional earth for the globe socket.

there is a button on your brake pedal lever that while braking gets depressed, and turns on your brake lights. Now this component is a plastic piece that can get knocked loose rather simply. You either need to re-secure this component, or replace it

(you can get this part at any junk yard for nothing more than some pocket change)
