Hello and welcome to Just Answer

1st check that the indicator stalk is in its 'rest' position and not moved up as the sidelights will stay on if the stalk is left up or down as this is a feature for showing where your car is when parked

if this is OK then it may be an issue with a bulb ground? as this can create issues with feedback to the body control module

so I'd suggest to remove the sidelight bulbs front and rear and inspect them for damage or corrosion and do the same for the light sockets too

replace the bulbs if in any doubt
