Default Interior and parking lights constantly flash unless battery is disconnected

Still no solution for this issue, ive tried unhooking the battery overnight so the "computer would reset" and nothing happened.
the problem started when i went to start the truck and let the ignition off early, when i started the vehicle all the interior lights and parking lights started flashing at a speed slightly faster then hazard
light speed even with the ignition off, ive tried switching the relay and nothing changed so the relay is fine. any ideas?

I can only hazard a guess (no pun intended) on this but I suspect you have a problem in the multi-function switch (turn signal/wiper stalk) or a short in the steering column.

First now long have you own the truck?
A previous owner may have installed a aftermarket alarm system, most alarms will flash the lights.

I agree, depower the alarm and see what happens, sure sounds like it thinks its being stolen, does the horn work? My boy had a Eagle Vision years ago, and the trunk would pop open whenever it wanted, all by itself, in the middle of the day or night, never did figure that one out.

If you have factory keyless entry its prob the body control module, that is a dealer issue sorry to say.
