This is the second time in a year that the parking lights have stayed on when the lights are shut off and the key is removed. The first time, I replaced the headlight relay. This time I removed all the relays and the fuses that I could get out and the lights still stayed on. My only solution is to remove the battery cable each time I use the car. This problem also included the dash lights.

You have unswitched power to your parking lights, so if the light switch contacts are wearing out, you could have parking lights on with the key off. I know this because I drive a 1998 Camry, so I am familiar with the lighting systems.
So, try disconnecting your head light switch from under neath your steering column and see if the lights go out.
If that is unsuccessful, then:
