Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The box you are referring to should be the engine control module which should have no control over the lights. Can you explain what type of problem you are having that makes you think you have a short?
