1990 Toyota Pickup Warning Lights

Hey how's everyone doing today? I have an issue with my 1990 Toyota pickup's warning lights being constantly on? They will not shut off even if there is no key in the ignition. Any Ideas? Thanks in advance for any help or tips!

They should come on regardless of key in the ignition if the button is depressed. Are you saying they won't stop even when you turn the button off?

Yes they refuse to go off until the battery dies.

Are you talking about the dash warning lights (charge, brake, etc) or the exterior hazard flashers?

Hey you probably wandered off but i been reading a LOT about how a bad ground wire or odd short somewhere can make all kinds of weird things happen, because power flowing tries to find the path of least resistance 'to ground' or something like that. So if a pathway is not functioning then electrons will march down some other merry way, doing their thing, like making brake lights come on instead of headlights, or stuff. Looking at this file something relating to the wiring for 'connector D' might be a place to start...(page 2 or 3) http://personal.utulsa.edu/~nathan-b.../6combinat.pdf
