Hello and welcome to just answer. Is it only the marker/running lights that turn off?

No when I pull the switch all the way out I lose all lights associated with the marker light. I have replaced the light switch 3 times
Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

But if you pull the switch out to the first detent the marker lights come on and stay on?

Hmm, you may have a ground circuit problem. Go and check all grounds on the truck's frame and body. Clean and tighten them as needed. Look on the frame and under the hood. Let me know if you see loose or corroded ground connections.
