The parking lights on a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix will not shut off if the switch has become damaged or the wiring has a short. This will trigger the lights to stay on regardless of the input from the driver.
Turn your head lights off before you shut the car off
engage the parking brake , or shut the engine off
Check the adjustment of the brake light switch.
Shut the car off, engage the parking brake and when you turn the car back on the lights will stay off until you release the parking brake.
Depends on the type of car. My mom's car take about 5 minutes while my dads turns off immediately.

If the Explorer is running engaging the parking brake is supposed to turn the daytime running lights off , otherwise the daytime running lights are supposed to shut off when the engine is shut off . I have a 2004, Eddie Bauer Explorer. On the light switch itself, there is a selection to turn on or off the day lights, as well as the extended, courtesy lights after ignition is turned off.
I would suspect a bad headlight and / or turnsignal switch assembly. I just ran across this problem recently with an 89 Aerostar with an Astrostart remote starter. When using the remote to lock the vehicle, the parking lights flash on and off. Something with the Astrostart was keeping the parking lights on until I shut the power off to the remote starter and from that point on the parking lights shut off fine. I don't know though what in the Astrostart is causing it. I don't know anything about remote starters. The owner is happy that his battery no longer goes dead but now he has to get help with the remote starter.
There are a number of reasons why your parking lights won't turn off. There could be a wiring problem in the system.
When your parking light stays on after you shut off the car, it is likely that the relay on that circuit stayed on. Disconnect the battery for 10 minutes or so and then reconnect it.
You don't unless you are parked with the engine running. If you are parked and you want the engine running but don't want the daytime running lights on just shut the car off and set the parking brake then start the car back up. The lights should remain off until you release the parking brake.
The only way to turn them off is to shut off the ignition, pull on the parking brake lever, then restart your engine. Running lights should be off. Once parkig brake is released, lights will come back on.
First shut the vehicle off, then set the parking brake, then start it back up, the lights should remain off. Once you release the e-brake the lights will come back on.
if you leave the parking lights switch "ON" the lights will remain on, even if the car has been turned off.
by design the DAY-TIME-RUNNING lights are not intended to be turned off by choice. When you start the 99 blazer with the parking brake on, the DTR lights are off. When you release the parking brake they come on. When you park again and apply the parking brake the DTR lights will stay on, unless you stop the engine and re-start the engine. Since the DTR lights are inter-wired to the regular headlights, they can not be defeated without affecting the regular headlights.

There should be a switch on top of the steering column. Press this switch and they should cancel out.
On some models, when the indicator switch is put into the turn position with the ignition OFF the front and rear indicator lights on the selected side act as parking lights.

Between your steering wheel and your instrument panel on your steering column, you will find a small rocker switch that controls the parking lights. I can't tell you why it is there, but it does turn the parking lights off and on independent of the ignition and headlight switch.
