Theres a problem in the switch, it may have been worn out. you may try replacing the lever switch if theres an aftermarket or surplus parts available in your area.

98Volvo s70 heater core just replaced and now it smells like oil and there is an oily film on the inside of the windshield. Why?


That sounds like a fault in the cylinder head gasket. Check your oil for water, it makes the underside of the filler look like grey mayonnaise. Check the coolant for oil. And then you have a leak in the pipes to the heater core or the core itself.

Or is may be that when the heater core leaked, the coolant fell on oil or grease and it is drying out?

I had the same problem on a 92 & 95 Dakota years ago, replaced the turn signal switch in the column & found a loose ground wire in the harness back by the tail lights. Never had a problem again. If you're gonna try to replace the switch you will need tamper proof torques bits just FYI. Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.

Headlights and turn signals do not work. Wipers stay on.


I'm going to say you blew a major fuse or fuseable link wire you have not found yet.
The wipers need power from a battery source to stop, the headlights probably are on a battery circuit too. The turn signals would go thru the key switch but the hazard flashers would be also be direct battery.
You may need a wiring diagram (book) to find all of the fuses and circuits.

Head lights stay on after engine is shut off.light switch in car is not on.tail lights aren't on just head lights


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.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional questions or information. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!
Again stated: these will normally turn off after 1-min.

My headlights wont turn off on my 2003 dodge intrepid


I own the same year make and model. The headlights are supposed to stay on for a few minutes if you shut them off after shutting off the engine. This is a safety feature. These are the headlights only. If the lights, side markers and taillights stay on, then the issue is most likely the switch. You will have to pull the switch and disconnect the wiring harness to confirm this. If the lights go out, then the switch is bad.
However, if the lights don't go out, or the headlights never shut off until they drain the battery, you may want to take the car in to get diagnosed. There could be an issue with the body control module or wiring. Most likely, it is the switch as Chrysler uses the cheapest parts for their switches, but I would check it first and not swap parts. All you have to do to check the switch is pull the bezel it sit in out of the dash. The switch is held in with two screws.
