Re: Headlights on all the time

So with the headlight switch connector hanging in the air, all four headlights are still on?? I read that correctly?

Re: Headlights on all the time

That's a neat trick. Can you say "maybe wired wrong" boys and girls.

Just a thought: Have you connected the switch, but haven't got the knob on there yet? If you have the knob removed, the switch will be in the "on" position.
