Electrical issues

Hey guys,
I have a 96 P/S I'm having trouble with. When I turn the headlights on I don't have any tail lights, dim and slow turn signals and brake lights, and when I turned them off the front running lights, amber, stay on. I have to pull a fuse out for them to go off. Anybody have any idea's what to check?

check the back side of the headlight switch , could be melted , that would be my guess , they were bad for that
