Oh man. One time, on my '50, my tail lights were stuck on sometimes, I couldn't find the reason they were always hot. I kept looking, and looking. Sometimes it would be days of normal operation, other times I'd come out in the morning and the lights would be on. The solution: The spare fuse would slip out of the holder, and lay across the contacts in the fuse block!

This happened a few months back. It was the wire that returns to the circuit box that wasn't tight. I haven't had a chance to check it out as the truck is at the muffler shop having exhaust installed.

The belief that there was nothing
and nothing happened to nothing and
then nothing magically exploded for
no reason, creating everything and
then a bunch of everything magically
rearranged itself for no reason whatsoever
into self-replicating bits which then turned
into dinosaurs.
Makes perfect sense.
