There have been problems with the headlight switches failing prematurely due to current spikes. I have also seen this sort of problem when the wrong headlamp switch has been installed. The switches for the different chassis that Mack manufactures often use switches that are similar in appearance but that have different pin locations.

Have you changed any headlights lately??? be sure you have the right headlight bulb installed, there are 2 diffrent numbers 9007 I beleive is the correct one for your truck!

But check with the dealer for the proper number!If you put the wrong light in one side it will cause this.

I actually have the switch unplugged and the lights are still on, we got this at the auction this way. I am trying to get it going. You know though the switch dont have the factory plug in the back of the switch. Someone replaced it with female spade connctors. Do you know if the switch has to be in the circuit and working properly to complete the circuit so the lights will shut off?

Just an idea, have you tried replacing the relay with a known good one? I'm wondering if the relay could be stuck.

Yes, I bought 3 new ones for the old ones was missing when the truck was boughten. I then thought maybe just by luck I got some bad ones so I bought three more from Napa and the same thing was going on. I am at my wits end on this one. I thought maybe mice or something got in and chewed up the wiring so I got the dash wiring undone and checked to make shure the fur biting criters didnt do any damage.

You sure? I thought the CH used the 9004... :blink:
