This could be caused by a failed switch but is more likely to be a relay that has welded its contacts. The switches generally only switch a few tenths of an amp to actuate a relay that does the 'heavy lifting.'
Hopefully, your owner's manual has a diagram of the fuse box in which one also often finds the various relays used for power switching. Sometimes the layout can be found on the inside of the fuse box cover. 
You might try switching the lights off before you turn off the ignition since it is a fairly common feature to have the headlights stay on for a minute or two as a convenience for the driver.

When headlights turned on the dashboard lights dim and after 5 minutes a warning sound comes on.


Sounds like your charging system needs some attention.
1st check battery for voltage should be 12.50 or better with car off
2nd, start car check battery for voltage again should be 14.0 to 14.75 volts.
3 with running turn on headlamps and check charging voltage again if your voltage dropped to battery voltage your charging system is not working.

Day light


turn the headlights on and off until the nitro beeps at you, that means you have manually over ridden the head lights. I own a Chevy S-10, and I can mash the button 5 times and the lights will shut off.

Lights completley shut off and on even while driving chrysler 300


you need to replace the relay for the headlights located in the fuse box in the engine compartment near the battery. the headlights you see when you shut off the others are likely your day time running lights

Head lights turn off and come back on on their own!!!!!


There is a short in the power wire to the headlights from the headlight switch. The internal circuit breaker in the headlight switch is overheating and shutting them down, until it cools off.

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