Check that the fuse for the parker or running lights has not blown, check the power flow with a test light both sides of the fuse to be sure it is ok, let me know what you find, I would be hoping that is just a simple fuse blown, start here.

I should have added, fuses all check out good, headlights work and with drivers door open there is a quick chime even though key is not in ignition and lights are not on

I have had the same exact issue down to every detail you described. If I jiggle one of the smaller wire bundles just above the battery to the right of the fuse block everything works. Haven't yet been able to track down the proper fix.
