    I bought and drove my 1994 dodge viper home and now the side markers and rear lights won't shut off. Anyone ever had this problem? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks 31349913_10103612081636545_2712995635312721920_n.jpg 31292658_10103612081476865_6658366964378894336_n.jpg

    Pull the fuse or disconnect the battery to save it from dying if you need to, and also inspect it. Could be corrosion on the stalk itself, the light relays, or a contact point somewhere in between. I've only seen a slightly similar problem with the GENIII map lights on the mirror, and its usually corrosion. May even a blown bulb, or wrong bulb in the wrong place. I believe some of these circuits are very odd, and I've noticed issues when people add LED bulbs.

    I would re-seat the relays, fuses, and inspect the connect points. Sorry, wish I had better advice.

    If battery gets disconnected the alarm will set and you’ll be unable to start the car. Keep this phone number (317 402 9013) handy as Steve will be your go to guy. In fact a call to him right now likely wouldn’t hurt.
