Oxford hot grips red LED lite always ON?

I just noticed that the red LED lite (100%) on the grips control panel is ON and sometimes blinking/fading in & out, even though the grips are turned off! Why? they're connected directly to the battery btw.

Sounds like your controller is getting flaky. No heat in the grips when you notice this?

Most likely cause of Oxford heated grip exhibiting strange behavior is bent pins within the rounded multi-pin connector

That's just showing you oxfords quality control. I went through three of their defective control boxes before switching brands entirely. Good luck.
