This is not happen all the time. Looks like some sensor or switches are gone bad. To avoid battery drain way I disconnect the baterry wire. Please help me what to do?

This might be a switch  - test the switches. You can pull the fuse if you are driving during the day to save disconnecting the battery.

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.

My headlights stay on even when key removed but the turn signals still work


You might have a bad ignition switch. Do the other accessory power features stay on too? Eg .... Radio, blower fan... Do the turn signals still operate when key is removed? But a bad multifunction switch (turn signal, headlight switch) coukd also be bad.

Its when i take out the key and lock the doors that the headlights come on


this is caused by you delay switch or relay staying in the closed position causing it to short out . or if your headlight switch is on the steering colume and acts as a signal light switch used for low and high beam will need replacing

Headlights taillights stay


it's running hot because of the battery. For example, some fuses are hot at all times, and some are hot manually with car running for instance. Try wiring the positive to a source that is hot only when the car is running.

Passenger side fan stays on


If the heater blower motor resistor failed then the heater will stay on full blast to keep your window clear, for safety. If the key is turned off and the fan still blows then I suspect you have an ignition switch problem. Main power comes from the key switch to feed the heater system. The plug at the ignition switch could be melted and making contact or an internal switch problem. The switch is located on the steering column under the plastic cover.Unplubbing the switch should help diagnos the problem.

Hello, firstly I was wondering if the lights shut off when you pull the switch off the harness?
If YES, then THAT switch or wiring could be bad
if NO, then it's most likely the body control module
