My nissan skyline has imported japanese headlights. when switched on there was a 30 sec time delay initially and then one stopped working altogether. i eventually wired both left and right lights together which has fixed the problem but i need to fix it properly and i cannot find the relays that control them. can anyone help.

1996 taurus headloght stays on when car is off

If you turn your car off before you turn your car off that activates the sentine feature on your headlights and if your taurus has that feature. There should be a delay adjustment somewhere around the headlight switch. That is a nice feature to have when you come home to a dark house. The headlights remain on lighting your way in. Then, turns off after 30 sec. or so. If not so in your case then, let. me know

on the japanese cars u need to press the brake pedal to release the lock on the auto transmission.this works via the brake light switch.if u have no brake lights the switch is probably not working.replace this and see how things go.

Hi rodknob,

What are side lights ? are they a parking light ?
Think you need to wire the side light switch feed wire to a relay and have the relay power on when the car has Accessory Power from the key Switch accessory wire.
Using a delay relay means the lights can stay on for up to 660 seconds after you turn off the car accessory key switch.
Did a car with a normal relay off accessory wire as I use to forget the headlights and flatten battery.

Or you might be able to use
but you would need to ask them how to wire it to the headlight switch and if it turns on the headlights in the dark or inclement weather.
Like my
You might need to use a relay to feed the power to the headlight switch depends on current involved .
Holden commodore cruise does this as a standard feature via an auto headlight setting on the headlight switch..
