See if you can hold on your highbeams, as a temporary solution, until you can check and see if the fuse in the switch to turn your lights on is burnt out. I had the same problem with my car and apparently it was a defective part that GM had produced, but obviously they won't replace it free of charge. I would suggest going to an auto-wreckers and picking up a new switch there... the part usually costs around $400 in Canada.

SOURCE: tail lights stay on
This may not help but it is a possible source of the problem.
With a flashlight, crawl half under the dashboard and follow the brake pedal suspension up to its pivot point and look for an assembly that is related to it that has one or perhaps two wires coming from it.
This is a common way of detecting brake pedal useage and is a switch that contacts on release; in other words, a 'normally closed' switch that is held 'open' until the brake pedal is pressed. When pressed, the contacts close and supply either ground or +12 to the brake light circuit.
These switches are normally mounted on a bracket and the switch body may have fairly long threads allowing adjustment so that when the brake pedal is released, the button of the switch is depressed enough to open the circuit again and extinguish the brake lights.

SOURCE: park lights stay on
Look on the column up high. Subaru's (Legacy and Loyale have Parking/Standing lights. I hit mine without knowing it!!. A buddy figured it out. Silly me.

Safety Belt pre-tensioner Status (Driver pre-tensioner Circuit Fault).
On the seat belt buckle there is a pre-tensioner that when vehicle is involved in an accident it will deploy and pull the belt tighter.
If the vehicle has never been involved in an accident it could be what we call terminal fretting which is just a build up on the terminals which cause a open circuit. Usually just unplugging and reconnecting the connector a couple of times will fix this.
If this doesn't correct it I would recommend having your local dealer look at it.
