Hey Brad I'm sorry to hear about your issue too bad it's not uncommon!
I don't remember seeing or hearing about how you determined that there's lights were the issue! 
I'm not second-guessing you I'm just curious as to the method you used to determine they were the cause of the problem. 
I'd also be interested in knowing where this is, the state & town.
Best wishes to you
