if you leave the parking lights switch "ON" the lights will remain on, even if the car has been turned off.
Red lights flashing on a school bus mean remain stopped until they are turned off.
check your interer dimmer switch is it in the on position? dimmer switch is not turned on ... the lights stay on while the car is in use as well as when the car is turned off. they stay on exactally as long as the radio does if the car is turned off and you sit inside

They should turn off when the ignition is turned off and the key removed.

make sure your dash light dim control switch is not turned all the way up. they are usually found in the dash on the drivers side or on the same control as the headlights. see your owners manual for further information. Usually, instrument panel lights ["dashboard lights"] are turned on and off WHEN the headlights or parking lights are turned on or off. Since the head lights and tail lights are NOT powered through the ignition switch, and therefore can be turned on even while the ignition switch is turned off and the key removed, so are the instrument lights. WHILE the head lights OR the parking lights are turned ON, "brightness" control of the instrument lights is accomplished by ROTATING the headlight switch KNOB. A FULL CLOCKWISE rotation of the headlight switch knob will FULLY DIM THE INSTRUMENT LIGHTS. Full counterclockwise rotation [ONLY to the "DETENT STOP"] will adjust the instrument lights to full bright. NO POSITION of this switch causes the INSTRUMENT lights to remain ON. IF the knob is turned a little more forcefully COUNTERCLOCKWISE, PAST THE DETENT, then the interior courtesy lights and the dome light will be turned ON. IF your instrument lights remain ON, suggests that you have not FULLY turned OFF the headlight and/or parking light switch. If, as answer 1 suggests, you have a SEPERATE control switch for the instrument panel lights, then it may be possible that that switch does have a FULL-ON position which keeps the instrument lights on continuously, regardless of headlight/parking light switch status. As Answer 1 suggests, your Owner/Operator Manual should explain how your particular vehicle's instrument lights are controlled. If you do not have your Manual, find someone who has a car identical to yours and ask them, or look at their Manual. If you can't find someone, try a dealership used car lot for a vehicle like yours. j3h
sounds like a bad light switch.
In the back should be tail lights which always come on when the headlights or parking lights are on, and stoplights which come on whenever the brakes are pressed. The stoplights should be brighter than the tail lights, but they should be separate.
If they are all not working, I would suspect a blown fuse, or they are just turned off. There is a rheostat used to control the brightness of the instrument lights. If it is turned too far the lights will go off. Find the control and turn it. Sometimes it is the reset button for the odometer and sometimes it is a separate control. Look in your owner's manual for the location.
right after I turned the key
There's a switch that the brake pedal engages when pressed that makes the brake lights go on. this switch may be stuck.Or the peddle staying on switch
I believe most GM cars the daytime running lights can be turned off by applying the parking brake.
The parking lights are turned on when the headlights are on and you pull out on the light switch. The parking lights cannot be turned on by themselves.
Yes they should , they stay on all the time , while the ignition is on all the best Fester
That's how 1964 1/2 thru 1967 Mustangs lights are designed to operate.. when the headlamps are turned on the amber parking lights are turned off. That was changed sometime in 1967-68 so that the amber parking lights remain on when the headlamps are on.. It is possible to install a later model (1968) type headlight switch and wiring if you really want the parking lights to remain on when the headlamps are on however. Electrical Wiring drawings are available (to purchase) for every year mustang from almost any mustang restoration shop/website.
no, but it can be turned off.
There is a second light switch that activates the parking lights without the key being on. It is on top of the steering column behind the steering wheel. If this switch is turned off and the lights remain on when the key is off, there is a malfunction in this circuit.
Lights are off when the circuit is open.
May have to be turned off manually Auto sensor bad
To design a circuit so that lights can be turned on and off separately, we connect the circuit in parallel.

If you turn up your interior dashboard light settings, then the radio display will be brighter too. The radio dims to the setting for the dashboard when the lights are turned on.
If the lights in your lock buttons remain on after the truck is powered off, you may have a problem with your fuse. It the light remaining on could be because you have an electrical problem in your Ford Explorer, as well.
