On a 1973 Mercedes 280 (stored in a garage since 1992!) when the battery is connected the drivers side front and rear running lights stay on even with the ignition switch off. Any ideas why?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On a 1973 Mercedes 280 the drivers side front and rear running lights stay on even with the ignition key removed. Passenger side lights turn off properly.What switch or junction box could cause this, and where is it located? Could it be mouse chewing damage to some wire?

It could just be that you're turning the switch for the lights too far and what you're actually doing is turning on the parking lights.
