Parking Lamp Problem

Looked all over the internet but can't find a solution to my parking lamp issue.

The fuse, the relay, and the head lamp switch are all removed and the parking lamps are still staying on with key off.

The only thing I can think of that's left is the BCM causing it. It did this once before and swapped switch's and hadn't had an issue until now (~3 months). This is starting to annoy me to no end since removing everything should kill power to the lamps.

Any ideas?

Stock wiring stock bulbs?

PO didn't hack in a trailer light controller?

You're correct that with the fuse and relay removed there should be a way for electricity to get there. Are the lights on full brightness or just on a bit?

Stock wiring/bulbs.

Trailer harness looks OE.

Hard to tell with the sun and the battery being drained, but I'd say they're at full just as if you had them on with the switch.

Possibly another fuse? If the info I found is correct, 15 amp fuse, location number 6 should be the one for the parking lights

Disconnected the battery and reconnected it. Lights go off but after a few minutes, they kick back on, still with the fuse and relay out. They are dim, not fully bright.

Short in the lamp outage module?

Figured it out. Either the info I got was wrong or I was just pulling the wrong relay, but just started pulling fuse/relays till they went out. Found what seems to be a sticking relay, so that's solved but it also killed power to my courtesy lights. I can live without them if it means not having my battery dying.
