Did you try swapping relays to see if it is a stuck relay?

Sounds like the sensor on the dash is bad or something is blocking it. It works on UV light instead of ambient light.

headlight switch?? Do the lights all shut off when you shut the truck off? If so, if the truck is off can you turn the lights on and off with the switch?

If the light sensor was bad, and parking brake is on when you start the truck the lights would be off and then when you release the brake they would come on.
