Question 88 lights stay on

After taking out the headlights and taillights to paint the entire body, now that I've put it all back together the lights won't shut off. They stay on all the time, only way to get them to shut off is disconnecting the battery. Any ideas of how to fix?

I only just started doing my own repairs so please bear with me.

Go over all of your connections. It sounds like your main ground isn't connected. Electrical can be a pia but I would start over again. The only problem that you'll have a hard time with is if you have a broken wire that you can't see or locate, then you'll need to check each individual connection for power and ground.
