How odd

My room mate is tearing up the roads of Northern Virginia in my 74 1/2 BGT 
while I'm off in a far off land, and he reports this problem which I'll 
admit is strange...

Yesterday on the way to work he noticed that the passenger side headlight 
was on.

The light switch was off.

He put the light switch on, (car running) passenger side headlight stayed 
on, driver side did not come on.

He turned the car off.  Passenger side headlight stayed on.

So as not to drain the battery, (he thought) he pulled the fuses.  The 
headlight stayed on.

So of course he pulled the ground on the battery and it went out.

Like the subject says: how odd.

Anyone else have this happen to them?

My inclination is to have him start checking out the switch for a short and 
work back to the headight wiring, but I thought I'd draw from the deep well 
of knowledge here before giving him his marching orders.

Thanks in advance,

Scott Allen
