Lighting problems

So as i was got out of the car today i noticed my lights wouldnt turn off on the headunit. I closed all the doors many times an push the lights off manually too. When i had the key in accessart they went off but when i took them back out they came right back on. As of right now i pulled the fuse so my battery wont die

Mine will do that if I turn the key off with the headlights still on..but they go off after a few minutes...Do your headlights turn off and stay off if you shut the headlights off before you shut the engine off and remove the key?

if i turn off the headlights they go right off but the lights in the car will stay off. Also the engine just started blinking on the VIC. Not sure if they have anything in common.

Not to be an ***, but did you take the key out, get out and wait patiently? Jus gotta ask to be clear. This stumped me for a bit after I first got mine. Wait it out, time it.
