    Anyone come across this. After turning off my truck with the headlights on, the lights stay on Fog, headlights, taillights etc and will not turn off unless i turn the lights off manually. I've had my truck for 2 years, 08 QC/LB and this started happening a few weeks ago. The only electrical mods i've done are HID ballasts and lamps, and they have been installed for a year or so. Any help would be appreciated.

    So what you're saying is that you leave the lights on, turn the truck off, then open the driver's door and the lights are not turning off when you open your door? You do have to turn the truck off BEFORE opening your door for that feature to work. Once you open the door, you can turn the switch off and back on again to keep them on while the truck is off. From the other responses, sounds like we need a little more clarification on the problem.

    Yours sound like mine, I have to fog light mod done and they(fogs) will stay on after turning the truck off, exiting the truck, shutting the door, and the headlights have already turned off when opening my door. What is going on with the 08's?
