Signal light staying on (mirror and rear)

Hi, I’m having an issue with the signal light mirror and rear staying on. I replaced the bcm and that wasn’t the issue now I’ve been playing around with the rear signal. If I remove the rear bulb with the signal off and re install the bulb the signals will work correctly for a bit then stay on continuously.

Exclamation 2013 Rio Turn signals stay lit (Mirror & Rear)

Only the mirror and rear drivers side signal lights stay light with the ignition off. If I remove the rear bulb I can get them to turn off and fix the problem but the issue persists after a few minutes or when I flash the signal. I replaced the bcm with a new unit and this did not fix the problem

Any help is appreciated. I donít have access to a Kia dealer.

Hope this helps. Could be an issue with the multi switch or even in the instrument cluster.

Here is why I think sometime may be a problem in the instrument cluster.

Thanks can you explain a little bit more on why you think it may be the instrument cluster? I have a new multi function switch on the way.

My feeling is that something may be happening with the diodes that are towards the top of the picture. They may be allowing power to flow incorrectly. You really need to take it to a shop even if it is not the dealer. Electrical issues can be hard to track down, especially without a good amount of test equipment, and just throwing parts at the problem can get expensive.
