Tail Lights stays on
« on: April 05, 2017, 09:17:00 AM »
Finally got the cursing wagon running..
I noticed that the tail lights are always on, I keep the battery disconnected so I don't drain the battery.

Can someone point in in the right direction..

Thanks
Joe

might have a bad brake lite switch , there is a plug in above the brake pedel ,looks like two green wires , unplug that plug , lights go out you need a new switch , but if you do replace the switch make sure its the right one ,, power brakes take a different swich than non power brakes ,,
