Why wont my 98 Explorer headlights shut off?


Headlight switch? Headlights don't use the fuse panels. Is there a delayed off for the headlights? If so, this module might be defective.

Headlights stay on too long after engine is off


been working on the same issue for a week. fixed it last night after research and trouble shooting. The head lights are controlled by the head light dial/knob on your dash on the left side of your steering wheel. With the knob pushed in, if you shut down your car, the lights should automatically shut off as well. Mine didnt so what I did was i turned off my car, disconnected the positive battery terminal located inside a fist sized red box on the right side of your engine. Then I took off the dash panels to get to the actual connection on the headlight switch/dial/knob. I disconnected it and put it all back together. It fixed the problem.It worked for me, maybe theres an easier or faster way of fixing it but this worked. Good luck.

Running headlights won't turn off when car is shut down, why?


Are you sure that you do not have a delay timer on these lights? This is a feature that keeps the lights on for a set amount of time for you to see your way to the door or whatever. My light timer is on a 30 second hold before turning off.

The headlamp switch will cause the lamps to turn off. The switch heats up and turns the headlamps off. It will cool down and work for about 10 minutes and cut out,

This is normal. They time themselves out. Is the switch in the auto position? If so, turn it off, and they will turn off with the car.

You probably have a faulty sentinel switch. It's supposed to shut off, has a bult in elctronic timer. Does it even have the sentinel switch?

Headlights stay on after you shut off the engine


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