My lights won't turn off

My truck lights will not turn off. I have taken my keys out of the ignition and closed the doors and nothing happens. The interior lights won't shut off either. I have turned the ***** for the lights and nothign there either. I have looked in the fuse box and I can't find anything wrong. Can someone please help me before I end up with a dead battery?

Unhappy

what happens when you disconnect the battery and reconnect it? I don't know where I'm going here, but it seems like you have a bad switch. Having never had an experience of that nature, I'm only guessing.

Good Luck!

does the cab light on the outside stay lit?? i'll bet they do.
If so take a can of wd-40 and lift the door handle on both doors spray the wd inside the door handle for about 20 seconds. do this on both doors. Make sure the windows are up first and the doors are open to allow drainage of the wd out the weep hole at the bottom. Then work the door handles and open and close the dorrs and it will work, been there done that. lol.

BTW, our trucks have a battery saver feature that will shut off the lights, even if you leave the doors open, in something like 10 minutes?
