Default Taillight troubles '85 F250 6.9l

Hello everybody, I was hoping to get some suggestions on my taillight troubles. When the headlight switch is on, the taillights stay on as if the brake is being applied. The brake lights and turn signals work fine with the headlights off. The headlights and front turn signals work fine. I replaced the headlight switch, and now the passenger side taillight works correctly, but the driver side taillight is still lit up full bore. I rewired the ground, but that didn't help. I have new taillight sockets coming in tomorrow so hopefully that will do it. Now there's a pigtail that all of the taillight wires come out of, but I can't find that part anywhere. I can't even find what that component is actually called. Does anyone know where I can find that pigtail, and does anyone have any ideas where the electrical goblins might be? I've had a few old Ford diesels, and I'm pretty familiar under the hood, but I'm lost when it comes to electrical issues. I'm driving this old truck out to Utah from Florida next week, and I have to get this fixed before I go. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
