    Ghost Lights

    So I had to leave my 2305 outside for a few days (semi-protected under a tree) as bathroom renovation materials (tub, vanity, tile, etc) took over the garage. Unfortunately, it rained all day yesterday and when I looked outside I noticed the LED lights, attached to the ROPS, were slightly illuminated giving off a "ghostly" glow. Machine is back in the garage now and they are still doing it. Never had this happen before - lights have been installed well over a year.

    I checked the switch and it is off and the keys are NOT in the ignition. The tractor fired right up no battery issues. Any thoughts?

    Switch has water in it, letting some electricity threw wet switch. My work lights on back of my Gator will do that after I wash it. Some day I'll get a waterproof switch and replace it. I blow out with air gun to get moister out of switch.
    Thanks Bob

    Agreed. LEDs don't need much current flow to illuminated like that. Water in the light switch would be enough.
