I’ve disconnected a dimmer and the lights have stayed on.
There is now no power to the switch yet the lights are on.

    You need to tell us exactly what you did when you "disconnected" the dimmer, and include photo(s) of the inside of the box where the dimmer was. Evidently you did more than just remove the wires and cap them off separately. – Jimmy Fix-it Sep 14 at 13:42
