Tail light question/issue DSDP

I have the MH in my sig.....Yesterday noticed that the tail lights are staying on all the time....Not the brake lights, tail lights....Also on are the "strip lights" (LED??) at the lower right and left under the tail lights.....

All other lights seem to operate normally..Just cannot get the tail lights to go off.........I have made sure the light switch is off and it also appears to work normally.....

Am I missing something???? ..Many new systems to learn........

I'll vote for a sticking relay , in the system , check your chassis wiring power center for a relay marked , tail or running lights, and touch it . If it is hot or feels warm , remove it to see if the lights go out.

Freightliner or Spartan chassis?

Check your 7 pin jack in rear for towing may have some loose ends.

You can see all the wiring when the engine cover is opened.

I start looking over every inch for anything out of place. Look for a smashed clamp or screw through the harness.

On ours the little LED strip only lights up when the brake lights turn on. If yours are on with the taillights, your problem could be more than a relay.

Good idea on checking the trailer plug.
