Ok,
So I went to the deer lease this weekend and bounced around a bit (And let my 11 year old drive!)......but I don't think that caused this.
The next morning:
1) When I sit down the seatbelt dinger dings, even without the key in the ignition.
2)When I turn on the lights, the parking lights, dash lights and tail lights dont come on.....but
3)When I hit the brakes, the brakes lights come on....along with the dash lights, tail lights and front parking lights. Even though the headlights are off.

This wouldnt bother me , except I have no tail lights at night.
Has anyone encountered this before? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/zombie.gif" alt="" />

Getting the Wheeling Fever
Sounds to me like a grounding issue. Might check the ground points under the hood, by your feet, and in the back by the tail lights.
I had light and mainly dash issues on mine. I ended up running separate grounds from all those points all the way back to the battery.


Got torque?

is your sport wired to tow a trailer? if so, check your trailer lights wiring harness. had something similar happen to me while i was trying to wire in the lights.

I'm a bonehead! It was just the brake light fuse. Kinda weird that it would do that though. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/notooth.gif" alt="" />
