Hi Rikki, Is this that the problem is you actually turn off the Headlamp switch and they do not turn off and you have to disconnect the battery or something? Or Is it your daytime running lights that come on when driving even in the daytime? If it is your daytime running lights if you turn your switch half way on ''PUSH it in'' and pull it out to remove the switch then count the bottom row of wires form the right to left and get the third wire in on the bottom , ''green'' and pull out this pin and tape it, it will turn off the daytime running lights. However, I really don't want to do the whole, ''why don't you go to the dealer to get it switched off BS'' stuff,
But personally I drive with my main beam lights on all the time, I manually turn them on in no matter what car I am in so I can be seen by all the idiots we meet on the road. Statistically it has been proven to reduce accidents but I have had people reverse into me etc. even with the lights on and horn blowing. If I am mistaken and you just cannot turn off your lights at any time I apologize.

A motor at each side raises and lowers the lights. You probably need to replace the motor for the driver side.

One of my turn signals wont work, both my headlights only work on highbeams


replace the high beam switch which causes this problem. Also clean the terminals for the directional light bulb. That will cause a negative continuity to the bulb

Hi, try disconnecting the connector from the headlight switch. If this doesn't turn the lights off, the problem is the body control module. If disconnecting the headlight switch DOES turn the lights orff, replace the headlight switch. You can probably get a used body control module from a salvage yard. They may also have the headlight switch, but you can get those at your local parts chain. To access the switch, pull the bezel straight out as shown below. The BCM is behind the fuse panel as shown below. Please let me know if you have any questions, anmd thanks for using FixYa.

Headlights wont come on


if you have a test light check for power TO the fuse.there should be power at the fuse at all times.to do this clamp test light to a good ground under the dash and touch the top of the fuse on ether side, power should be at both sides.if you got power, remove the headlight switch,test for power at ether the red,yellow or brown wire,if you have power here,turn on head lights unplug each head light test for power at each socket,test the ground at each socket to do this,clamp your test light to the POSITIVE side of the battery touch the other end to the ground side of the light socket if the test light does NOT light,fix the ground wires this procedure is the quickest so do this first than try the steps above
