2005 GT passenger-side running lights will not turn off!

Couldn't figure this one out so took the car to the dealer and left it for service. The front and rear running lights stay on when all other lights shut off properly. It was raining heavy and long in my area the day this happened so maybe there is a connection. Anyone else ever experience this problem?

Any water in the passenger footwell? There's a junction box in the passenger-side kick panel that will cause all kinds of grief if it gets wet.

That was the first thing I thought of, too.

There's an access panel on the passenger side footwell. You can pop the panel off and see if the junction box is wet at all. Some mustangs have a leak on that side and the water gets into the box creating all sorts of problems. You can do a search of the forum to get more information.

OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.

I did not check for water. However, I have detected water in the footwell once before but never duplicated it. Any idea what is leaking? I'm off to do some searching on the forum now.

It was a leak afterall. The car was repaired and returned to me after two days at the dealer.

Well, glad they were able to take care of it without much problem.
