The Totally Integrated Module may be turning on the lights after you shut down. You should have the system scanned and have the module tested for problems internally. You should replace the component if it’s still causing the problem. The module will need to be programmed to work after replacement by a dealer level scanner. You should have this looked at by a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, to diagnose the issue with your lights firsthand in order to pinpoint the issue.
