Did you guys ever find a soultuiton to the dash lights being on all the time???

I'm having the same problems, It started with the factory alarm going off a few times at night.. When I turn the ignition to turn the alarm off the dash lights don't go out even when the car ignition is off?

There was a short in the trunk. I believe it was in the harness for the factory phone on the right side of the trunk. They told me water gets in there and shorts out the wires after time. I hope this helps.

check the connecting harness in the rear left of the trunk.....it often gets water damaged and shorts out. replace connector or just tape off wires so no short occurs...from what i understand it used only for the cellular phone if one was ordered at purchase of vehicle!
