    My headlights will not come on in the auto position. They will come on when you turn the light switch to the on position.

You need a headlight relay fuse. it should be a big square fuse on the front driver side.

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.

it will turn off automatically if you keep them on Automatic mode, see the option of automatic mode over the Headlights ON/OFF switch.

Headlights stay on when car is off.


I'm guessing it's a car with automatic headlights that turn on and off when the car starts and shuts off??? Some of these cars have a switch to turn off the Auto mode on the headlights however if this is not the case for you it sounds like a short or a bad relay if your unsure where to look I would recommend taking it to the dealer.

Headlights don't come on automatically


One way to turn off the automatic headlights when the ignition is to apply the parking brake. That dinging sound you hear when you shift into drive is also common with the parking brake applied.

Release the parking brake.

Headlight sensor


I have seen the sensor fall out of the dash housing. When you put it back it should be good again.

2006 suzuki grand vitara headlights operation


turn the selection knob to auto and leave it there. the lights will automatically come on whenever the sensor on the dash trips. it takes a minute in a tunnel but you will never have to worry if your lights are on.

Need to shut auto light mode off for my headlights


In your owners manuel, under driver configurable controls it will tell you how to turn them off. If you can't find it I can look it up at work tomorrow. Please let me know. Good Luck
