Light on dash

I I know this has come up before many times I have a dash light for passenger side that stays on when I turn on the headlights.

All the threads say it is most likely a bad bulb and I did find two on the passenger in the rear that were bad I have replaced all bad bulbs?

So now what?

Its most likely a bad ground. That is a tell tale sign if the indicator light is staying on.

Get a piece of wire and touch it from your vehicle frame to the socket for the bulb and see if the light goes out on the dash.

The tail lights ground through the body not in the wiring like the front lights do.

Try the front light too? the wires ground to a bolt on the radiator support next to the head light bucket.

I will try front headlights at lunch but I am fairly confident the front lights are not the issue as I have multiple grounds running for them I have completely taken the front headlight harness out and re-soldered and replaced all wires because I wanted heavier duty wiring and was running wiring for a Winch as well.

Just another update I took the steering wheel apart over the weekend to try and fix the Horn and now I have no blinkers at all and the dash light still stays on.

Man I hate electrical issues!

Ok blinkers work again changed the round relay on fuse box.

However the dash bulb stays on blinkers on passenger side blink much slower than driver side?

Does that mean my issue is isolated to passenger side?

Ok so I have figured out the issue turns out it is the emergency flasher as soon as I fiddled with it the light went out.

Just sharing at this point!
