More than likely the button / switch at the door has worn being made of plastic or has broken off try each door while holding the switch in until light goes off an adjustment on some models is available just by turning the screw in wards to allow the button to extend more also be sure the interrior switch is off sometimes that has occurred as well

SOURCE: parking lights remain on even when the car is shut off

hi, the main cause of this problem could be the switch on the brake pedal insside the car.
On the foot brake their is a switch that when you press the brake pedal down it then opens the switch making the lights come on.
Now the problem could be that this switch has fallen out of the holder allowing the switch to remain open causing the problem your having. Or it could be that the switch is damaged and needs replacing.
It can be hard to find but if you get down by the brake pedal so as you can see where the brake pedal goes through the bulk head just at the back of the pedal before it goes through the bulk head you should see a black plastic switch with two wires coming from ii if its still in the place where it should be then the chances are it needs replacing.
But if it is hanging loose then it could be that it has broke loose or just pulled out of its holder.
Hope this is some help to you let me know if you need further assistance ok

Parking lights stay on after car is off

There is a switch on top of your steering column for parking lights. It's there because your lights shut off when you turn the ign. switch off. The switch on the column allows you to turn on your parking lights with the ign. switch off. Try flipping the switch.

2000 chevy 2500 (new style) parking lights wont shut off

The parking lights staying on and the left turn signal not working may not be related, the turn signal is probably a burned out bulb, turn on the left signal and see if all the bulbs light up if not replace the burnt one, if they all light, the turn signal flasher may be at fault ( it can work with one side and not the other), as far as the parking lights staying on, check the door "pin" switch that controls the interior lights (are the interior lights staying on too?), since the chimes are staying on even with the keys on , I would suspect the door pin switch, probably the drivers side. I believe there may be a timer on the parking lights that turn them off after several seconds after the door is closed, this may be at fault if not the pin switch. newer cars and trucks also leave the reverse lights on for a while after the door is closed.
