Doc here,

Off hand, I'd say the Park lamps were wired into the turn/Brake system in error, and now react with those circuits..most likely culprit is the plug at the bottom of the column..check for a mis~wire..the park lamps (front) Traditionally go to a terminal on the light switch..not the rear lamp harness.

The Ding~Ding, may be the headlight on chime which should shut off with the ignition switch in the on position. Check to see the chime timer isn't wired to a "Hot at all times " power source..If it is move it to "Hot in Run Only" and it will work.
