Check power to the relay with the correct voltage tester for the system. If powered the circuit will remain closed keeping the lights on. If not powered, the relay is most likely stuck and you may be able to tap on it lightly and get it to release. It will need replaced if this is the case however because it will most likely happen again.

I turn the car off and the lights stay on and the a/c or heater still stay on... When I say light everything on the dashboard

I suspect there is a relay that is bad. Look for a power relay and unplug it,and see if light go out. the relays should be in a fuse box. Some vehicle have 2 fuse boxes(Under hood and under dash) check both and look for a power relays

Could I make a kill switch for my 99 r1 that would turn off and turn on all the lights and power? Currently my bikes lights and everything will stay on even with the key off and out the ignition. The bike...

Easily If you could wire it up to a relay the relay can turn off several things and turn on several things if you solder to the correct terminals. Is this for anti theft or is it in case you fall off the bike? :)

I have a 1999 dodge caravan. Passenger sign turn signal flashes for a short period & goes solid. Reverse light & brake light work just fine. Multifunction switch, light sockets, light assembly...

Sounds like the relay is burning out. When the lights stop flashing does the indicator on the dash light up and stay on and/or does the exterior lights light up and stay on? If the indicator light is staying on then you have a wiring problem to the lights or you have the wrong bulb/ bulbs. If the exterior lights stay on it is a bad relay or power to the relay.

Interior lights stay on

Any time something stays on that hasn't ben turned on then you should look at the relay that controls that component. The relay is stuck in the closed position and feeding power to the lights. Have the interior light relay replaced and that should fix it. Hope this helps. Good luck.

99 dodge caravan parking lights stay on after engine is off.

I had the same problem on my Chrysler Sebring but it was with the headlights staying on. The lights are on a relay called a "delay relay" of which will allow the lights to stay on for a minute after shutting off the ignition (after using your lights let's say when its dark). This of course helps provide light for you to see to walk to your house, keys, etc. But sometimes these relays stick on and just need to be replaced.
