Default Help! Lights don't turn off

So, I get home from work tonight and noticed that my taillights and yellow lights (the ones on top of the headlights) won't turn off. I tried turning on the car, turning on the lights, brights, turning everything off and they stay on even after the key has been removed. Had to disconnect the battery to turn them off. Anyone ever have this problem? Any ideas?

+1 on the parking light switch. Sometimes you can accidently hit that switch.
