    WTF!!! Brake Lights wont turn off........

    Need help please......

    WTF I went to work today and by accident left my brake lights on in the parkig lot. When i went to lunch i noticed they were on. So I turned them off. Got home tonight and noticed these suckers dont wanna turn off unless i unplug the battery. What do i need to do? i have no clue where to start.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I think the idea is you leave it on when you park your car somewhere where you think it might get hit if you don't have any lights on....it only turns on lights that don't consume much power....should be good for about 4-6 hours without killing your battery.

    Don't feel stupid, I think most of us have done it at one time or another. It's just that not all of us created posts about it. I know I've been there, done that.
