    I'm working on a 70 Charger with a problem I've never dealt with before. The driving/tail lights stay on all the time? Headlights turn on/off like they should but the others don't? Tried a new switch but it's doing the same thing? Any ideas?

    Are they staying on even when the key is off? The more info you can tell us, the better it'll be to diagnose it.....

    You sure it's not just the brake lights on.. and your switch is loose.

      I would try unplugging the column harness and see if the signal switch or hazard switch is stuck somehow.

      Sorry for the delay, yes front and rear lights stay on even with the key off. Have to disconnect the battery. Original harness. Brake lights are fine, just the running/tail lights stay on all the time. Just started doing this all of a sudden that's why I figured it was the switch. Thanks for the replies.
