Lights and Radio ALWAYS on, even with key off
Alright guys this one has my mind blown. 99 F250 7.3 4x4 auto.
This happened yesterday while I was on a job site. I pulled up and shut the truck off, but I noticed that the radio stayed on even with the key out of the ignition. I fumbled with the ignition for a minute thinking that maybe I turned it to accessory and somehow the key came out, but no luck.
At the same time, I noticed that my marker and dash lights are ALWAYS on, regardless of where the light switch is at. When I take the key out, it doesn't give the usual warning bell that the lights are on.
I pulled the radio fuse from under the dash, no luck. However, I pulled the fuse out from under the hood and that fixed the problem. So now whenever I want to shut the truck off, I have to pull a fuse.
Please help me on this.
