Re: runnig lights by John Newman
Post New Message Sounds as if you may have an open circuit to the tail running lights and to the left brake/turnsignal lights.

Have you checked to ensure 12 volts is available at the top clearance lights and/or to the left stop/turn signal lamps when the light switch is on or the brake/turn signal is on? Check from the bulb socket to a known good ground.

If you have 12 volts available there, problem could be in the grounding of the lights. Bad grounding can result in freaky operation of lighting.

Had a similar problem with the rear lights on my RV, ground straps were not working between the lights, installed a small sheet metal screw through both straps...solved the problem. Your system may or may not use straps for grounding, may use wireing.

Good luck with your troubleshooting,
