lighting issues

My 2001 530i has a couple of odd lighting problems. The tail light and front running light on the driver side will stay on after the lights have been turned off. I detach the negative battery terminal and they come back on after hooking it back up. Also the angel eye on the on the driver side does not come on and the running light on the passenger side does not come on. The blinkers all work fine. There are no indicators on the dash board showing lights being out. Which module should be replaced?

one word "relays" if they are stuck it might be causing the problem. if not follow the wires with a test light looking for faults.
