Unhappy Leaky Problems, Headlamps Stuck On

K 94 SSEi, for those that dont know. Had a small leak for sometime now, finally found it with a friends help.... small pinhole on the windshield seal. It was at the top of the driver side pillar, allowing water from the top to seep in, follow the piller down and get in behind the dash. Its been fixed, red high temp silicone and all weather adhesive sealant. lol it was in the garage so i used both to fill and seal it. This is the resulting effect... Im at a loss

Apparently I didnt get it fixed in time, but everything still works well... too well... in fact lol

Its like a relay is stuck, or the Daytime switch is fried and stuck on, but i know its not that simple due to everything thats on. The headlamps, tail lamps, cluster lights, basically its like i pulled the headlight switch on all the way, but they wont go off until i disconnect the battery!!!! As soon as the ignition is kicked on they car lights up. Interior lights arent stuck on, just the driving lights and cluster. But my abs light is now lit up on the cluster and today going to work my door dinger wouldnt go off.

Pulled the fuses, theyre ALL fine as far as i can tell, but the water leak dripped right onto the fuse block so I dont know the extent of what could have been damaged. Dont know where the relays are so havent checked them. Any ideas, was curious is its possible the BCM could have shorted from water damage, but does it control the headlamps???

Short of burning the car whats the options... kidding btw i love the car and want it fixed not erased just feeling like dh2

*smacks himself for triple posting*... but its been a couple hours of researching so its ok rightttt?????

K found that for the 94 bonnie... there is a Headlamp Control Module that tends to go out due to heat and or water damage probably since its (suppose to be) behind the dash, above the fuse box.... somewhere

Do any of you with SMs have a diagram, picture, or idea of its actual location and or how to get it out so i can look at it, and or replace it????

thanks for any help guys, unplugging the battery is getting old lol
