Only 2 things can cause this either the headlight switch or the headlight relay,chances are it's the switch,if you have a multimeter pull the relay out and probe the leads with the headlights in the off position you should only have power on 1 wire,with them on 2 wires are hot if this is the case then the relay is stuck,it's in the fuse box under the hood,another thing can cause this if the fog lights have been rewired to stay on even with highbeams on,power will feed back to the headlight circuit.

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 wont turn off


I had this same thing happen on my 2005 Forenza. All of a sudden my battery was dead. When I got it jumpstarted the headlights came on bright and would not switch to dim. They also would not turn off with the switch or any other means other than pulling the fuse under the hood. Carried it to the Suzuki dealership and found out that my car had never had the headlight harness recall fix, and there were several other recalls on them for waterpumps and something else that they fixed while I was there. If you have a Suzuki Forenza you may have a recall outstanding. But I don't know if they are even still honoring repairs now that they are out of the auto business. It's worth a check by calling the nearest Suzuki dealership.

Check under the hood for the big fuse box. Pull the relay that is indicated for the headlights. It is getting hung up by welded contacts. Replace it!

Headlights wont turn on?


One: replace the fuse box. Never tape a burned wire. It will eventually catch fire and then... You cannot fix a fuse box that has been burned. Also, there are surely burned wires elsewhere that you have not discovered yet. I recommend that you REPLACE the front harness, or at least the wires that were burned.

2001 saturn sl1. Headlights stuck on brights and wont turn off unless i remove the fuses. So now only are the headlights on, but they are stuck on brights mode unless i pull out the fuses. what can I do to...


I suggest testing the relay for your highbeams (under the hood) as it sounds the relay is stuck in the on position. If that doesn't work, you may have to test your high / low beam lever to see if the contacts are touching
