Automatic headlight switch

Is the timer for the headlights build into the switch. My parking lights will not turn off and I think it's the timer. anyone that has had this problem I will gladly accept the advice.

IIRC there is a relay in the fuse panel. Also your photocell may be malfunctioning. Do they turn on all the time? Or only at night?

Pulled fuse number 38 and they turned off. Fuse controlling trailer parking lights. Functions perfectly now? Bumfuzzles me. Guess there may be something shorted out in my trailer wiring harness. Lot cheaper to fix that harness vs headlight switch.

Glad you at least got it narrowed down. Electrical diags are a nightmare
