Hi everybody

Hope you are all well. Would appreciate any help with this problem.

When I turn the ignition off and remove key, the left hand rear stop/tail bulb stays on, after flashing a few times. I have had all four bulbs out, checked them independently with a standard circuit tester and all bulbs test OK. I have also cleaned the contacts. I put them back into different holders to the originals, but the problem still exists. All bulbs and holders were clean and free from rust or dirt.
There is no warning on the sid or on the dash. I only really noticed after it flattened a new battery and then I noticed the rear light on one night so investigated.

Thanks

update

I replaced the 2 nearside 580 bulbs, even though the old ones were working. Must have been a voltage/ wattage issue on one or both of the old ones. Now working all OK.
