Had that happen to mine and it turned out to be the trailer brake unit being faulty.
Obviously it was the stop lights on mine but worth a look if yo have a unit.
Cheers

I have the same issue right now. My tail lights and number plate lights don't work. Stop lights are working fine. I have found that the wire comming to lamp sockets is corroded and lamp sockets also corroded. I changed about 2m of this wire and changed lamp socket aswell. Also sprayed lamp sockets with anti corrosion oil.

If it is brake lights there is a rubber stopper on the brake pedal that turns off the brake light switch, i had mine fall out and there for the brake lights wouldn't go out.Just glued the rubber stopper back on and all good again.

We had massive dramas with one trucks lights working on and off too. Turned out to be connection under the passengers seat. It's under the black cover and it connects the front wiring loom to the rear one.

Fix was some contact cleaner and a good old push back together and we had all lights going again.

Let us know how you go.

Cheers, my lights turn off when I push the switch in but the rubber stopper has gone, I have pulled the fuse out to stop lights for the time being.

I noticed my brake lights were constantly on today. Came home, removed the fuse. Jumped on Patrol forum, found the problem in 10 minutes of being home. Plastic stopper was broken, easy fix and very easily found due to this forum. Cheers
