I read the post concerning the courtesy lights that wouldn't work, but I have the exact opposite problem. My courtesy lights won't go off when the doors are shut.
I checked to make sure the headlight switch wasn't turned all the way counter-clockwise, and it wasn't. Then I thought maybe the door switches (courtesy and door ajar) were bad so I replaced all of them with new terminal ends on the wires.
I had to remove the bulbs, because the courtesy lights stay on and won't turn off.
In my electrical diagram when you follow the courtesy light it leads to a switch for the door , then branches and heads to the headlight switch then heads to connector white wire. This is for a 75 don't know if that helps or not but maybe could trace backwards and find the problem. could you have some bare wires somewhere?

If all of the switches are good, and properly adjusted, then you have a short to ground, most likely somewhere close to the switch. Disconnect the door switches(at the front door jambs) completely, and see if the lights will go out. If they do, then one or both of the switches need adjustment. If the lights do not go out, you have a short to ground.
It's possible the headlight switch is faulty, also.
