Heated grips stay on

My heated grips started staying on any time the key is on. They are wired to ACC2. The lights on the heated grips switch are not illuminated but the grips heat up anyway.
This is not a new install. They have been installed for 12000+ miles and this issue just started.

Any ideas where to start looking for the problem?

Trace the wires and look for a short.

The switch contacts might have fused together . Disconnect the switch and mega the switch connections.

I had this problem

Mine had a short between the heat element and steering bars. Seems the switch was cutting the ground.
Good luck.
