Check for sticking relay. With everything off and good battery, feel top of relay for one that is hot. Pull relay and if lights go out, install new relay.

1 if you have the f250 with the auto lights your sensor can be broken or shorted out.
2 if you have the regular light switch you have a short in your wiring which creates a loop through your lights. Moste likely near the fuse box. the terminal will get power there from a short.
Take fuse panel out and look for the short in there. those are the only things it can be

Sounds like there is a short in the bulb of your headlight. Try replacing it to see if that helps.

SOURCE: head lights stay on after engine is shut off.light

If you are turning the engine off before turning the headlights off then the headlights(only) will remain on for approximately 1-min. This feature allows you to use the headlights to get to where you want to, such as to your door with some light.
If your are turning your engine off before turning your headlights off, to turn them off - turn the headlights back on and then back off again. The headlights will turn off immediately.
However, if you are NOT turning off the engine before turning off the headlights, then this feature may be malfunctioning in the switch. To remedy this right away use the above procedure - turn back on then back off; until you can replace the malfunctioning switch.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional questions or information. Feel free to contact me at!
Again stated: these will normally turn off after 1-min.

Alfa 1452liter twinspark, 1999 model. We clean the trottle body put it back and key code and injector light stays on and wont start

At some point the computer has detected a fault (probably the missing throttle body while you had it off) and has thrown an error code. Suggest you get the error code reset - that will probably fix it. You will need the reset device to do this or get a dealer to do it.

When i replace battery in alfa 146 the key code light on and no starting and i just have the red key and no code card i am in Egypt at holidays times and no agents i tried to disconnect battery for 3...

only soloution is to wait till agent is open as this requires the special diagnostic computer of the dealer to re-programme it ,changing the battery shouldnt make this light or the immobilisor come on but anything is possible with a motor vehicle ,you could try disconnecting the battery again and join the + and the - battery cables together and leave for a while as this may reset the software ,also check the key as you may have lost the chip out of the key inside the key is a little ceramic looking thing this is the memory for the immobilisor.

Head lights and rear lights run on a separate power line than the ignition switch. Those are on a manual switch always allowed power wiring.

You need to put the key on and push the gas pedal to the floor three times within five second to reset the oil life light.Some g.m.'s have a reset buttom in the fuse panel that needs to be pushed first and some don't.Check the owners manual under change oil for your specific year car.

you need to source either the repair manual for them
or just the ignition wiring diagram and wire colour legend for the 1980 and 1985 alfa spider
