If you take out the indicator bulbs and the check panel fault goes then youve defiantly got a short but that could be anywhere alarms can hold on indicator circuits

go into the fuse box and start testing with a multimeter for shorts.
start big(main fuses) and go small(individual circuits powered off that fuse thats drawing power when it shouldn't/drawing too much current).
