take it in to the dealer and have them adjusted as they have a gauge they put on the lights to get them set perfect, if there not set right you will end up blinding someone coming at you or you will be way off on the headlight aim.

You have a short in your system somewhere. It's ussually the cigar lighter, but it could be any of those components. Try unplugging the cigar lighter and see if that helps.

I had a very similar problem on my 95 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme. After hours of pain staking work I finally found that a wire was loose. The wire is coated red and is beneath the fuse box on the drivers side directly behind the windshield wash tank. There is an eyelet on the end of the wire and one screw holding it in place directly under the fuse box. As soon as I tightened the screw my problem went away.

Most likely, the switch that controls your parking light is stuck.

It may be the turn signal switch located under the horn in the steering wheel. Try holding up the turn signal lever with your left hand and apply the brake. See if that helps.
