many many years! since I was a kid
the D+ feed from the alternator will have a separate fuse to power the step relay in

Had same problem with my CI motorhome 18 months ago. Stripped step down 4 nut and bolts, greased bushes and bolts reassembled and fitted nylock nuts. Do not overtighten, just nip up. Jobs a good un.

there is most probably a switch which is operated by the step when it closes... the relay coil that operates the closing of the step when the engine is running is earthed via that switch, and that switch is most probably stuck and needs a clean up..

Usually the micro switch at the step, water and crud gets into it,
Try and seal the connections with some under seal to stop repeat failure,

its usually close to the motor but not part of it, and usually well covered and operated by one of the step link bars as it swings up into the closed position if its a conventional step. if its a slide out then the switch is inside the step casing...
