I just had this problem. It turns out there's a plastic piece on the brake that hits the Stoplight switch. If the Stoplight switch is not depress, the rear park lights (stop light) would stay on.
If parking lights stay on after the car is turned off on a 2001 Hyundai Elantra than the brake switch is malfunctioning. The brake switch turns off when pressed in and if it does not work the lights of the vehicle will stay on.
Readjust the brake light switch on the pedal.
faulty hdlmp switch
Out of adjustment. Adjust the mounting of the switch so the brakes lights are off until you press the brake pedal.
the ash lights come on when you turn your park/ head lights on are so you may have a faulty head light switch!
Probably a brake light switch.
Check the setting on the switch
why does the dome lights stay on when the switch is turened off 2001 ford explorer super
Rocker switch on top of the steering column.
There is a switch called the "twilight sentinel". That alllows you to adjust the time that the lights will stay on after you turn the engine off. Check to see if that is working properly.
