Towed my 2013 Acadia this week and had the headlights turn on when fuses were pulled. Would replace fuses and go through procedure again once or twice and the lights would not turn on. Going down the road later they turned on at some point draining batt. any thoughts?

I keep my backup camera on continually while towing/driving. That way I know what's happening to the towed vehicle.

I don't have a solution, but I have experienced something somewhat similar with my 2007 Grand Cherokee toad. A few times I have noticed the headlights come on after I brake heavily. They go off a bit later, so I had no battery drain, but still a very strange thing, and clearly something is not right.

Not sure if the diodes on the toad stop lights have somehow gone bad or what. Not sure what else could cause it. If this happened during the day, not sure I would notice in the rearview camera, but it definitely gets your attention when driving at night.

See the thread started several days ago where this was discussed. This happens to me every time the Batt 1 fuse is pulled. I have to pull the left and and right high beam fuses on my 2015 Acadia.
