1999 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 152000 miles
My running lights have pretty much always flickered, and by reading some of the posts, it sounds like a Ford thing. However, today I had to jump my car. I didn't leave my headlights on or anything like that. I checked the battery, it was good, and when I got home and turned my car off, I noticed that my running lights were still on. They've never done what they are suppose to-stay on for a few seconds after the car turns off and then they turn off. They've always just turned off as soon as the ignition turned off. Well this time it didn't. I had the negative battery cable undone for a bit to see if the computer would reset itself, and the lights would remember to turn off lol; but they still come on when I reconnect the battery cable. Not sure if it's a short somewhere, and maybe my lights flickering was forewarning me of a short or if my dimmer switch is stuck or what. Hope you can help! Thanks so much!
