Complaint - Electrical System

I BOUGHT THE TRUCK IN APRIL OR MAY. WHEN MY TRUCK IS STATIONARY AND TURNED OFF WITH THE KEYS OUT OF THE IGNITION, MY DASH LIGHTS DO NOT SHUT OFF. I DIDN'T NOTICE THIS THE FIRST TIME BECAUSE, AT NIGHT, MY LIGHTS STAY ON FOR ABOUT 20-30 SECONDS AND THEN SHUT OFF. THE FIRST TIME I NOTICED THIS, I GOT HOME FOR THE NIGHT, PUT MY TRUCK IN PARK, SHUT IT OFF, AND TOOK OUT THE KEYS. I USED MY REMOTE TO LOCK THE TRUCK. GOT IN IT THE NEXT DAY AND IT WAS COMPLETELY DEAD. I HAD TO PUT IT ON THE BATTERY CHARGER FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES AND FINALLY GOT IT STARTED BUT I NOTICED WHILE CHARGING IT (WITH THE KEYS OUT OF THE IGNITION) THAT MY DASH LIGHTS WERE STILL ON. ITS ALMOST LIKE MY TRUCK DOES NOT KNOW THAT IT IS IN PARK AND IT THINKS IT IS STILL IN GEAR WHICH KEEPS MY DASH LIGHTS ON. A FEW DAYS BEFORE I STARTED EXPERIENCING THIS ISSUE, MY REMOTE STARTER WOULD NOT WORK ALL OF THE TIME. IT WAS VERY HIT OR MISS. I'M NOT SURE WHAT TO DO ABOUT THIS.
