I have been having an issue with lights coming on when toggle switch is in off position. I am taking a couple days off and cant seem to find a kill switch for batteries. Any ideas?

Nope, they don't all have a power kill switch. If yours doesn't have one. Which should be visible between the drivers seat and the door then you'd have to disconnect the batteries. Huge PITA.

Depending on how long it'll take to diagnose & fix your issue, why not see if your local dealer can have a look at your issue? Should be under warranty since its a new truck. Don't know how close or far you are from a dealer but it's just a thought. Good luck!

That is the plan, just today the switch is barely able to turn off light and they wont stay off for long. With todays holiday and lack of availability for weekends the typical wait times to get it looked at for the local dealer here it will likely be next week before I can get any diagnostics, and will probably take several days to fix. There is not really any access to the batteries only pos and neg terminals mounted on frame under the hood. I brought my truck home so I can monitor the light issue and start truck to recharge batteries as needed, until I can get it to a dealer. I am not sure the warranty will cover this the truck has 117,000 miles, but the company I work for will probably cover it. Thanks for your replies!

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

If you could get it by a company shop, that's obviously best. What does this company recommend?
