Rear parking lights stay on

Are they on when you are not in reverse like when driving? Is this an automatic or manual transmission? If so replace the range selector switch if it is an automatic or replace the reverse switch if it is a manual.

1990 f150 has no reverse but has all forward gears

I'm sorry to hear you have this trouble. You don't say whether this is manual or standard so it is hard to say much more.

I don't think you can fix this in your driveway. Probably the transmission has to come out. See your mechanic soon, in the mean time, be careful how you park.
