hello guys and gals im new to this forum and i apologize as im sure there has long ago been a thread related to my issue but i doubt i would find it due to number of threads ...
my issue is i have a foreman 400 that my father in law gave me when he bought a new one and the neutral and reverse lights are always on but does not affect how the machine works it runs and drives as normal just annoying to have them always on.

thanks in advance for any help you can offer me

Maybe just take the bulbs out ?
and that solves what ^^^^ ?. I can see right now, you would have a burned up atv for not fixing the problem from a electrical fire !
Removing the bulb was just a suggestion..Do whatever you want. Besides ,how would it catch fire? We're talking about 12 volts here through a circuit that is resisted through the bulb...removing the bulb would also disconnect the 12 volts from reaching ground.
believe it or not ?, 12 volt dc CAN burn/melt, catch on fire, seen it too many times. if there is a direct short to ground ?, it can happen. like I said, removing the bulb WONT fix the problem. removing the bulbs also does not stop the current from traveling through the wires ?, its always hot at all times,, regardless if the bulb is in there or not.
