2002 Ford Excursion Q&A

2002 Ford Excursion Question: Why do my interior/running board lights on my Excursion stay on?

I changed out the corroded battery cable on my 2002 Ford Excursion 7.3L Diesel. The positive cable that goes from the starter to both batteries. Once I hooked it up the interior lights and the running board lights turned on and now they wont turn off. I tried unhooking both negative cables for a few minutes to reset it but that didn't work. Any other suggestions? Thanks. -
Answer 1
Do you have an alarm? Try arming/disarming the system. -

I have the stock alarm and I did try it. That wasn't the case. Any other ideas? Thanks. -

Dimmer switch has no effect either? For now you may have to pull the fuse and take it in to a local shop to trace the bad connection. -
