Like daytime running lights on with the ignition or on on like all the time and flattening the battery?

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

Top tip - Jimnys use negative switching for the lights (i.e. the switch is on the - not the + feed to the light).

Any wiring shorting to the body would make the corresponding light come on therefore ;-)
