You will need to have someone look the damage over. Sounds like there was damage to a wiring harness or electrical control module.

Why will the headlights not turn off when ignition is turned off?


I will fill in the blanks....you must have a newer car with auto head lights....there is a setting on the headlight switch that lets you over ride the "automatic" headlight mode....maybe you or someone accidently turned it to the manual "on" position...if so turn it back to the "auto" setting......2nd....new cars do have a delay before the headlights go out after parking your car. And if you read your manual, you would see that the time they stay on after turning your ignition key off can be set to several different time settings, including to switch off as soon as you turn the key off.
But if you had accidently turned the light switch to the "on" setting.... fear not....the headlights will automatically go off after the battery is dead....lol....actually they should go off within 2-3 minutes of turning the key off...unless you have an open door or trunk...or engine hood...or maybe even a gas cap door...and your car is telling you "something's open" by the lights staying on....Take that Jim and see if it gets you anywhere.

Headlights have off delay


only if it offers you the option in your owner's manual some other than you can I'm not sure about your particular vehicle it is usually a dome override button somewhere around your steering column you have to press in a sequence to do it

2002 Grand Marquis headlights won't turn off with switch, won't go out until vehicle is turned off


Might these be "driving lights"?
Cars with "driving lights" have lights that are supposed to stay on all the time the engine is running.
These lights not only look like headlights, in fact some cars even have the headlights themselves come on when the engine is running. Look as some more (several) 2002 Grand Marquis's and see if they are the same.
Be blessed.

Headlights stay on when truck is off


Do they ever shut off after turning off the engine. If not check the headlight switch to make sure that you have them on auto or in the all off position. even in auto they should not be on in daylight.

My son just purchased a 2006 GMC Envoy and Check Engine Light kept going on. Dealer said it is due to Secondary Injection Pump (Code P0410),which my son paid them to replace. Again, Check Engine Light...


Until yesterday, I have never had a serious mechanical issues with my 2006 Envoy Denali, which only has +/-60K Miles (under extended 100K Mile warranty).

Yesterday, however, while taking an interstate on-ramp (I think I hit 40 MPH tops?), my 5.3L V-8 engine shut down while in use. I immediately pulled over, as my power steering went out when the vehicle shut off, and coasted to a stop on the shoulder.

My vehicle would not restart... the dealership took a look at it this morning, and their preliminary findings are that the engine threw a rod, there's metal shavings, and some liquid (water?) in the engine.

I'm still awaiting their full estimate of the damage.

Do the headlights stay on always even during daylight driving on a 2008 Saturn Vue


YEP ALL TODAY CARS COME FROM THE FACTORY WITH DAY TIME RUNNING LIGHTS WHICH STAY ON WHILE YOU DRIVING.IF LIGHTS STAY ON WITH ENGINE OFF YOU HAVE A FAULTY DRL RELAY OR DAY TIME RUNNING LIGHTS RELAY.YOU COULD HAVE TURN ON HEAD LIGHTS MANUALLY FROM THE SWITCH.WHICH WILL CAUSE HEAD LIGHTS TO STAY ON.

Headlights on automatically


if you bought this truck used it may have been a commercial/fleet vehicle. and around the time of production the insurance industry determined that daytime headlights increased viability and reduced accidents.and they gave fleet insurers a discount . i am not sure if this was just a add on module that can be removed contact your local chevy dealer's parts dept.

Fan won't shut off


Try hook up the rad fan wires to the wires that power the headlights so that when the vehicle is running the fan would come on, or even try a toggle switch. If this aint working take the car in to the mechanic. hope I could have been some assistance. Charles H

2001 chevy silverado 1500 headlights wont shut off


You will have to have the dealer reset the security light to restart vehicle.Check all engine and chassie grounds because this is where the lighting would exit the vehicle.It sounds like a ground burnt through.
