Default Drivers side parking light glows and wont shut off

Tried searching and couldnt come up with any solutions. As the title states my parking light bulb in my R53 is glowing and wont shut off. Tried disconnecting the battery, checked the fuse and even replaced the bulb to no avail.

I had my tech rewire the oem driving lights to turn on independently from the high beams so this issue has to be related. Bad relay maybe? Any feedback would be grealy appreciated.

I don't know if this is what is happening but if you turn the turn signal on when the car is off, the parking lights will stay on on whatever side the turn signal is turned too. Just went and tested it. Did you accidentally leave your blinker on?

Good luck,

Nik

Tell me about it. I keep on going back to the car every hour to see if its still on. ...its driving me nuts.

Just for clarification the light is not completely on, its just glowing so its obvioulsy getting power from somehwere even though the car is completely off.
