Re: [Help] Got a ticket for ALL 3 TAIL LIGHTS staying on.

I HIGHLY doubt this is a bulb issue.
The amount of wires under my sterring wheel is nuts!

When you hit the brakes, does the dash illumination turn on?
Check when it's dark with the lights off, it's possible it is doing it and you just haven't noticed.

If it's a bulb shorted, your dash lights will come on with the brake lights on, as both circuits are now common.

It won't do anything if there's a reverse current protection diode in the parking lights circuit, but I've yet to see one that does.

Pull out that bulb you installed and recheck.
