280 ZX 2+2  Rear combination upper unit lights (both sides) stay on even with rotating light switch and engine off. I had to disconnect the battery to turn off..reconnected and they are back on. Possible cause? Relay or ??

1 Answer


did it start doing this after a big even like a short or while wiring work was being done or a wreck or anything you can check the relays and see if they are bad they usually have a diagram for the contacts and see if the normally open contacts have been some how kept open and if so replace those id advise getting a wiring diagram of some sort and trace connections to possible sources
