Question Electrical Problem - passenger side tail light and front directional light stay lit

Hello this is my first thread, but here goes. I have a 2005 V6 mustang and today out of no where the tail light and front directional light stayed lit when car is off. It is either one or the other.

I am going to try to replace the bulbs first for both passenger lights that are having the problems. Has any one had this problem before, I read the post about the radio issue drawing power but this may be something different.

This is my first Ford, before this I had a 1999 Nissan Altima with no electrical issues ever. I just was wondering if these are common issues with Ford.



Thanks

Mike

Re: Electrical Problem - passenger side tail light and front directional light stay l

I do not have a wiring diagram for this car- but would suggest trying to find one. If this car uses a live feed with ground switching for the lights you may have a bad ground or pinched wire somewhere. Has the car been in an accident. If so- check the areas where any impact occured first.

Replacing your bulbs will not solve your problem. If your headlights and ignition are off- they should be off.

If you really think it is the bulb- swap them with the opposite side. The problem should move.
