for the courtesy lamps, it's going to have to be one of four things:
1) closed door ajar switch (these are normally open) or wire to bcm is shorted to ground. These wires will be tan with a stripe.
2) bcm is sending constant ground on brown/ light green wire or the output wire from the bcm (brown/ light green)to the courtesy lamp relay is shorted to ground
3) bad courtesy lamp relay
4) bad bcm
For the VIC, check power at the connector. 10 is ground. 2 is hot from battery. 16 is hot from switch.
