I have a 94 Explorer headlights will not go out even when ignition is off and key out.


Headlamp Delay System - Autolamp, Aerostar and Explorer
The autolamp system provides light sensitive automatic on-off control of the exterior lamps normally controlled by the headlamp switch . The autolamp system keeps the lamps on for a preselected period of time after the ignition switch (11572) is turned off. The preselected time lapse can be adjusted by the operator up to three minutes.
On Aerostar, the system consists of a light sensor amplifier (13A018) , automatic headlamp dimmer relay (13A025) , and a time-delay headlamp dimmer sensor control (13C105) which includes an ON/OFF switch.
The Explorer consists of an ON/OFF switch, a light sensor and a time delay control which are part of the inside rear view mirror (17700) and two automatic headlamp dimmer relays .
Connections to the vehicle lamps parallel the connections to headlamp switch requiring the headlamp switch to be turned to the OFF position for the automatic control feature.
In normal operation, the system will turn the exterior lamps on when the natural outside light available to the light sensor amplifier decreases below a predetermined level, such as at sunset. Also, the lamps will automatically turn off when the level of outside light exceeds a predetermined level during daylight hours.
On Aerostar, the light sensor amplifier is mounted under a group of slots in the upper instrument panel in front of the driver. The light sensor amplifier must always be exposed to outside light to function properly. Do not place any items over the group of slots in the upper instrument panel which may block light to the light sensor amplifier.
On Explorer, the light sensor amplifier is on the back side of the interior rear view mirror. Do not place any items on the mirror that will block the sensor.
The headlamp dimmer sensor control thumbwheel is located next to the headlamp switch for Aerostar and on the interior rear view mirror for Explorer. The autolamp system is functional for automatic operation when the on-off control is moved from the OFF position. The closer the control is moved toward the max-delay, the longer the lamps will stay on after the ignition switch is turned off.
Pulling out the headlamp switch will override the autolamp. Automatic operation will not be possible until the headlamp switch is turned off.
Can you operate the headlamps manually, do they work ok? I don't like auto-lamps. Just my opinion.
I thought the above info might help?

Back lighting or warning lights ? check engine , ABS , air bags , seat belt , oil light etc... ?
Interior Lamps Dimming
The second group includes lamps which may be dimmed. This group may use a combination of vacuum fluorescent (VF) illumination and incandescent lamps.
• Power window switches
• HVAC control head assembly
• Radio
• The instrument panel cluster (IPC)
When the ignition switch is turned to the ON position, the vacuum fluorescent (VF) display (radio) turns on at maximum brightness. When the park lamps are ON all incandescent back lighting turn ON at the dimming level indicated by the IP dimmer switch. At the same time all vacuum fluorescent (VF) displays dim to match the indicated dimming level. When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, the park lamp supply voltage circuit provides an input to the body control module (BCM). The BCM then supplies voltage to the instrument panel dimmer switch through the instrument panel dimming lamps control circuit. The setting of the instrument panel dimmer switch determines the amount of voltage that the instrument panel dimmer switch supplies to the BCM through the instrument panel dimming lamps low reference circuit. The BCM then sends a pulse width modulated (PWM) voltage to all the interior lamps. All the vacuum florescent (VF) and incandescent back lighting lamps are provided a specific voltage and are then grounded. When the headlight switch is turned to the PARK or HEADLAMP position, all incandescent back lighting turn on at the dimming level indicated by the IP dimmer switch. When the IP dimmer switch is moved from MIN to MAX, all vacuum fluorescent (VF) displays, as well as all incandescent back lighting respond from Minimum intensity to maximum brightness in response to the IP dimmer switch.

I would have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the BCM !
DTC B2624 Display Dimming Input Range/Performance
The body control module (BCM) supplies voltage to the instrument panel dimmer switch through the instrument panel dimmer switch signal circuit. The dimmer switch varies the voltage and returns the new voltage to the BCM through the dimmer switch signal return circuit. The BCM uses this voltage to determine the illumination level of the instrument panel lamps.

DTC B2625 Display Dimming Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) Output Circuit Range/Performance
The body control module (BCM) receives a variable voltage from the instrument panel (I/P) lamp dimmer switch. The BCM uses this signal in order to vary the illumination level of the I/P lamps. The I/P dimming lamps output from the BCM is a pulse width modulated voltage supply used to light the I/P lamps. If a malfunction occurs in the I/P dimming lamps output circuit, this DTC is set.

DTC B2662 Park Lamp Switch Circuit Malfunction
The park lamps are controlled by the turn/headlamp switch. Positive battery voltage is supplied to the switch through the EXT LP fuse. When the turn/headlamp switch is placed in the park or head position, battery voltage is supplied to the park lamps. The body control module (BCM) is also connected to the park lamp circuit to sense whether or not the park lamps turn ON when the low beam or high beam headlamps are turned ON. The BCM also uses the parklamp battery positive voltage to power the instrument panel (I/P) dimmer output circuit. If the BCM senses that the low beam or high beam headlamps are ON and the park lamp input is not active, DTC B2662 sets.
Do the park lamps work ?

I'm needing the wiring diagram for my 2007 Chevrolet Impala LT 3.5 tail lights.


Go to http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html free wiring diagrams ! You having tail light problems ? Do you know how they work ?

They are turned on by the BCM !
Park, Tail, Marker and License Lamps
The park, tail, license, and marker lamps are turned ON when the headlamp switch is placed in either the HEAD or PARK lamp positions, or anytime the automatic light control (ALC) turns the headlamps ON. When the headlamp switch is placed in the park lamp or headlamp positions, ground from G202 is applied through the signal circuit to the BCM indicating the park lamp request. In response to this signal, the BCM applies ground through the park lamp relay control circuit energizing the PARK LP PCB Relay. With the relay energized, battery voltage is applied through the switch side of the relay, both park lamp fuses, and the supply voltage circuits illuminating the park, tail marker, and license lamps. Ground for the left front park and marker lamps is provided at G101 and the right front park and marker lamps at G100. Ground for all rear lamps is provided at G302.
Turn Signal Lamps
The LT T/SIG and RT T/SIG fuses located in the underhood fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the body control module (BCM) for turn signal and hazard lamp operation. When the turn signal switch is place in either the LEFT or RIGHT position, ground from G202 is applied through the turn signal switch signal circuit to the BCM indicating the turn signal request. In response to this signal, the BCM applies a pulsating voltage to the front and rear turn signal lamps supply voltage circuits cycling the lamps ON and OFF. The BCM also sends a message via GMLAN to the instrument panel cluster (IPC) to cycle the turn signal indicator ON and OFF depending on the position of the turn signal switch.
Ground for the turn signal lamps is supplied as follows:
?€¢
G101 provides ground for the left front turn signal lamp


?€¢
G100 provides ground for the right front turn signal lamp


?€¢
G302 provides ground for the left and right rear turn signal lamps

Why don't lights work?


Both the headlight switch and the BCM provide a ground, or control circuit, to the headlight relay coil circuit for manual or automatic headlamp operation. When you place the headlamp switch in the OFF position, and the ambient light sensor indicates low light conditions, the BCM energizes the headlamp relay for low beam operation. You may switch the headlights to high beam by pulling the dimmer switch handle toward you until the dimmer switch is activated. When the dimmer switch is placed in the HIGH position, the indicator lamp input to the BCM is pulled low. The BCM then sends a class 2 message to the instrument cluster in order to illuminate the high beam indicator lamp.

Why doesn't my speedometer/odometer, horn and headlights work?


Which insturment cluster does your's have ? electronic instrument cluster or standard instrument cluster !

Standard insturment cluster - speedo / odometer
Speedometer/Odometer
The speedometer and odometer provides speed information based on a speed/distance pulse signal from the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). The VSS is mounted on the speedometer driven gear in the transmission.
Could be the VSS is bad .
Horn The horn system includes the following:
  • horn relay
  • horn
  • clock spring
  • steering wheel control switch harness
  • steering wheel pad horn switch, which is part of the driver side air bag module. For additional information, refer to Section 501-20B .
The horn is located behind the front bumper mounted to the radiator support.

Is the air bag light lit on the insturment cluster ? If it is the clock spring could be the problem . If not lit check the circuits from the horn relay .

VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis .

Which headlamps don't work ? Low beams , high beams , both ?
  • The high beams are inoperative
  • Bulbs.
  • Circuitry.
  • Multifunction switch.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test C .
  • The low beams are inoperative
  • Bulbs.
  • Circuitry.
  • Headlamp switch.
  • Multifunction switch.
  • LCM.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test D .
Principles of Operation
NOTE: Due to varying wattage ratings and resulting current draw, certain aftermarket headlamp bulbs may cause the lighting control module (LCM) to shut down the short circuit protection, resulting in the low beams becoming inoperative. Verify that the headlamp bulbs meet Ford specifications.
Headlamp System The headlamp system consists of:
  • two aerodynamic halogen headlamp bulbs and retainers
  • headlamp switch
  • multifunction switch
  • lighting control module (LCM)
  • circuit wiring and circuit protection
In normal operation:
  • With the multifunction switch in the low beam position, power is supplied by the LCM to the low beam elements through the multifunction switch.
  • With the multifunction switch in the high beam position (forward detent), power is supplied to the high beam elements and to the high beam indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • When the multifunction switch is pulled toward the steering wheel, the flash-to-pass switch (part of the multifunction switch) is closed and power is supplied to the high beam elements. When the switch is released, they return to low beam operation.
  • The battery saver feature of the LCM will automatically turn off the courtesy lamps, demand lamps, headlamps, or parking lamps under the following conditions:
    • The ignition switch is in the OFF position.
    • The headlamp switch is in parking lamps ON or headlamps ON positions.
    • After 10 minutes.
Headlamp Switch The headlamp switch is a multi-position switch.
  • The positions include OFF, PARK, and HEAD.
  • With the headlamp switch in the PARK position (first detent), a signal is supplied to the LCM which powers the front parking lamps, the tail lamps, the side marker lamps, and the license lamp.
  • With the headlamp switch in the HEAD position, power is supplied to the headlamps through the LCM and the multifunction switch.
  • The panel dim switch (part of the headlamp switch) is located above the headlamp switch. The panel dim switch operates only with the parking lamps or headlamps on.
  • When the panel dim switch is held in the up position, the instrument panel lighting will progressively brighten.
  • When the panel dim switch is held in the down position, the instrument panel lighting will progressively dim.
For additional information, refer to Section 413-00 .
Headlamps On Warning Chime If the headlamp switch is left in either the PARK or HEAD position and the driver door is opened, the LCM will sound a headlamps on reminder chime when the following conditions occur:
  • The ignition switch is OFF with the ignition key out.
  • The driver door is ajar.
For additional information, refer to Section 413-09 .

Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the system.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.

Under system click on lighting ,then under subsystem click headlamps . Click the search button then the blue link's . Right away in the first diagram i see the headlamp / panel dimmer switch is a input to the BCM - body control module . I mite think your first response would be to want to replace the BCM ! Reading a discription of how the lights are suppose to work may shed some light on the problem .
Headlamp ON/OFF control is determined by the body control module (BCM) by a signal on the headlamp switch on input circuit when the headlamp switch is in the HEAD position. When the headlamp switch is in the AUTO position, the BCM determines headlamps ON/OFF by the voltage from the ambient light sensor.
If the headlight switch is left in the ON position, the inadvertent power control feature will turn off the headlights approximately 10 minutes after the ignition switch is turned to the OFF position. If the driver places the headlight switch in the ON position after the ignition switch has been turned OFF, or if the ignition switch is in the ACCY position, the headlights will remain on until turned off or the battery runs dead.
The high beam indicator is illuminated when the instrument cluster receives a class 2 serial data message from the BCM that the high beams are illuminated.

Having the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes , BCM - codes ! Need a professional type scan tool . Part stores can't read body codes , dealer or independent repair shop .

DTC B2575
When the body control module (BCM) senses a request for low beam headlamp illumination, the BCM sends a ground signal to the low beam headlamp relay through the headlamp low beam relay control circuit. The headlamp low beam relay will apply voltage to illuminate the headlamps.
DTC B2580
When the body control module (BCM) receives a ground signal from the multifunction high beam or flash to pass (FTP) switch commanding to illuminate the high beam headlamps, the BCM will energize the high beam relay by grounding the high beam relay control circuit.
DTC B2600
DTC B2610
The body control module (BCM) receives a variable voltage signal from the instrument panel (I/P) dimmer switch requesting to illuminate the illumination lamps to a desired intensity. When this occurs, the BCM directly sends a variable voltage based on the I/P dimmer switch position on the instrument panel lamps dimming supply voltage circuit, instrument panel lamps dimming control circuit, and the LED dimming signal circuit.
Voltage for the instrument panel lamps dimming supply voltage circuit, instrument panel lamps dimming control circuit, and the LED dimming signal circuits is from the TBC 2 A fuse in the instrument panel fuse block directly through the BCM to these circuits.

DTC B2620
The BCM directly sends a 5 volt reference voltage to the I/P dimmer switch which is then adjusted based on the I/P dimmer switch position and returned as a dimming return and dimming input to the BCM. The BCM uses this signal to directly control the desired level of instrument panel illumination lamp intensity.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

The instrument cluster controls the headlamp systems that include daytime running lamps (DRL). The system allows the headlamps to operate at a reduced intensity when all of the following conditions apply:
• The engine is running.
• The transaxle is not in the PARK position.
• The normal headlamps are not on.
The instrument cluster turns the DRL system on by grounding CKT 592, thereby energizing the DRL relay. This action allows a reduced voltage of 6 volts to flow across the headlamps. If the vehicle has the optional fog lamps, the fog lamp relay will also be energized. The park lamps will turn on and the fog lamps will operate normally. When the headlamp switch is turned to the ON position, the instrument cluster allows normal headlamp operation.
The instrument cluster also has an input from the park brake. If the park brake is in the ON position, the DRL will remain disabled until the park brake is placed in the OFF position. On vehicles with an automatic transaxle, the instrument cluster will disable the DRL until the transaxle has been taken out of the PARK position.
Headlamps
A rocker type switch is located on the left side of the instrument panel (IP). The rocker type switch controls the headlamps. One switch position turns on the following lamps:
• The parking lamps
• The side marker lamps
• The taillamps
• The license plate lamp
• The IP lamps
• The interior lamps
The second switch position turns on the headlamps in addition to all of the above lamps.
An IP lamp dimmer control is provided in order to vary the intensity of the IP lamps. Turn the control past the full bright detent in order to turn on the courtesy lamps.
The under hood lamp is designed to turn on under the following conditions:
• When the hood is raised
• When the parking or headlamp switch is on

You probably have a open circuit in the wiring for the passanger high beam .

Your best bet would be to have a qualified repair shop check it out . May have a broken wire somewhere in the wiring harness .
