Why won't the headlamps turn off?


Maybe a stuck relay or bad headlamp switch ! You may have a DTC - diagnostic trouble code stored in the BCM - body control module ! These codes do not turn on the check engine light ! There could be a yellow wrench symbol on the instrument cluster or a service vehicle soon light or a message in the message center if yours has one ! You would need a professional grade scan tool to check for codes in the BCM !
DTC B2578 Headlamp Relay Control Circuit High.
DTC B2577 Headlamp Control Circuit Low.
DTC B2575 Headlamp Control Circuit !
If no codes were found you would need to do some tests ,such as these .
If no codes Headlamp Low or High Beams Always On test

Why does my 1999 chevy malibu headlights turn on by them self in middle of night


You have a gremlin ! No , just kidding . No it's not the ignition switch ! The headlamps right an left have there own fuse in the under hood fuse box . LH HDLP - RH HDLP . Power direct to the head lamps an they ground through the headlamp switch when placed in high or low beams . Next time they come on wiggle the headlamp switch an see if they go out ! Does your vehicle have auto lights ? Day time running lamps ? The BCM - body control module controls Automatic lamp control !
Battery voltage is applied to the headlamp bulbs at all times. The headlamps are controlled by supplying the ground for the lamps through the turn/headlamp switch assembly or the body control module (BCM). When the turn/headlamp switch is in the ON position, the ground is supplied through CKT 150.
The BCM controls the daytime running lamps (DRL). The system allows the headlamps to operate at a reduced intensity under the following conditions:
?€¢
The engine is running.


?€¢
The transaxle is not in the PARK position.


?€¢
The normal headlamps are turned OFF.

The BCM activates the system by grounding CKT 592. This action energizes the DRL relay. This condition allows a reduced voltage to flow to the headlamps. When the headlamp switch is turned to ON, the headlamps operate normally.
The parking brake provides an input to the BCM. When the parking brake is engaged, the DRL remain disabled until the parking brake is disengaged.

Parking and dash lights turned on by themselves what could be the problem


Sounds like you have a Light Delay System that is probably malfunctioning.
Do you have an "Auto" position on the Headlamp Switch?
If so, Turn it off and see if that helps
You can check your Owner's Manual to see if there is a section describing Auto Headlamps.
Also most newer vehicles have a battery saving feature built into the Body Computer - allowing the Body Computer control of the interior lamps and headlamps so it can shut them down in case the operator forgets - if so it is malfunctioning.
Let me know what you find out
Thanks

Lincoln town car 2002 lights turn on themselves


on a 02 lincoln they are supost too , what i mean is they are called curtesey lights, you should not have to touch a light switch ever as this car has "daylght" headlamps, also interor lights all have a soft glow feature as they will gradually dim down but not go completly off till you move car forward aprox five feet

1996 ford explorer and the lights wont go off when i turn off the engine remove the key and turn the light switch to off. I have to remove the battery every time I stop the negine. I think it has something...


Are you talking about headlamps? If you pull fuse 11--20 amp, underhood fuse box, do the headlamps go off? Right now, I'm thinking something wrong with head lamp switch. Maybe the wiring connector has a problem or circuit is shorted to voltage. With the headlamp switch in the off position, there should no voltage for headlamps. As you can see, that fuse I mentioned is hot all the time. Just my opinion.

When the vehicle is off and alarm set, the headlights will come on and go off by themselves. What would cause this? No codes showed up when tested.


Does this truck have keyless entry and automatic headlamps? If so, then perhaps water has entered the keypad and is signaling the headlamps as if you hit the unlock button on your remote.You could get the truck checked out and have BCM codes checked on the DDM. Drivers door module.
