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.
If you turn car off and remove key from ignition, th? headlights will stay on until you open the driver side door, its part of an auto on headlight system. you can leave your selector light switch on the headlight position or on the daylight lamp relay (DRL) position. and open the driver side door and the lights will go out and not stay on. so it saves running your battery down. That feature is only on SLE trim line on the Solara.
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
Your Corolla has daytime running lights (DRLs). A photocell determines whether it is day or night. Your DRLs turn on automatically in daytime without you operating the light control ("headlight") switch. Your DRLs are actually your headlights on low beam. At night, the photocell senses it is dark and disables the DRLs. When you set the light control ("headlight") switch to HEAD, the head relay closes and the headlights should turn on. Since they don't, I suggest opening the engine room junction block and checking the 40A MAIN fuse and the 10A LEFT HEAD (UPPER) and RIGHT HEAD (UPPER) fuses. In engine room relay block 5, check the 10A LH-LWR HEAD and RH-LWR HEAD fuses. Replace any blown fuses and the headlights should be working normally again
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.

Again stated: these will normally turn off after 1-min.
Recharge the battery. Or buy a new one. But make sure you have a fully charged battery.What happened was that the battery drained because it probably needs replacement. When the battery drained too low. The ECU deprogramed itself. When installing a new or fully charged battery. Start the car. You may have to remove the negative cable a few times then restart it for the CPU to go into the default settings.
