Question about 1988 Toyota 4Runner
I have a problem on my 86 4runner (forunner). HeadLight switch (on steering column) is off, and key is out of the ignition (with car completely off) but the regular parking lights stay on and will drain the battery. I am tired of having to disconnect the positive cable from the battery every time I go somewhere.
This started happening last week when it was very cold and I drove in a snow storm. I suppose it is possible water is shorting out something, but I don't think so see as I have drove through many storms this year and nothing like this happened.
Do you recommend replacing the whole headlight switch in the steering column?
I would try replacing the switch, i had a 4 runner do the same thing and i replaced the switch and the problem went away.
