Check to see if it has anything to do with the delay setting. Check the delay setting.

When you say delay settings what do you mean check the fuses?

When you turn the vehicle off, its how long the headlights would stay on until they turn off.

When you turn the vehicle off, its how long the headlights would stay on until they turn off. There is a delay setting by the light switch. Do the lights and park lights turn off at all? After waiting awhile do they turn off?

No they dont turn off. The dinging noise goes off as if the key is left inside the ignition or door is left open. I have to unplug the battery everywhere i go its crazy

Try replacing the headlight relay, it may be stuck. I don't know the exact location but it would be in a fuse box either under the hood or inside the car on drivers side under dash area.
