Bright lights pop on when car is parked

I have a 2002 Saturn L-100. The bright lights will just pop on day or night when the car is parked. Twice I have drained the battery and needed to be jumped off. It's happening every night now. The turn signal handle feels loose. Thanks

For a quick fix take off the head light and, just unplug the bright lights. I had the same problem, and had to keep unhooking my battery everytime i parked the car, really frustrating!

My bright lights keep jumping on in the middle of the night. Is there a fuse for the bright lights


If the lights are coming on, WHY would you be looking for a fuse??? If the fuse is blown, the lights ill not work at all!

When you say "the middle of the night" are you saying that hey are coming on when the car is turned off and nobody is near it? or are you saying that they are switching to bright when you are driving?

Please review the following articles and get back with me.

Can I program the automatic headlights to always shut off when the ignition is shut off - day or night?


I have a 1997 cadillac deville that has both 'daytime running lamps' when put into gear and 'twilight sentinel' which turns the headlamps and parking lamps on at night, and goes off during the day or when it is bright enough.

There is an adjustable delay for the twilight sentinel to turn the headlights off after the ignition key is removed and it is night time.
---
I had the 'daytime running lamps' installed on a 1990 Cadillac Deville that turns the headlamps only on when the ignition key is switched to on with an aftermarket module. The headlamps are about 70% or so as bright as the regular twiilight sentinel headlamps and parking lights and are designed to go on during the day.

The twilight sentinel overrides this feature when it gets dark outside.

I had the daytime running lamps installed by an auto electric shop that specializes in electrical systems, alarms, stereos, etc.

Does this help?

2002 Saturn, cannot turn off headlights unless I turn off the car. Headlights come on by themselves in the middle of the night and drain the battery. When I try to use the turn signals the bright lights...


It sounds like you have a short within your Headlight Switch.....It's kind of difficult to replace, because you have to disable the airbag system....But just take it to a shop an um quit sure they can do it with no problem......You can also try the relay first because its cheaper...But your problem may be your switch itself...Goodluck

2002 SATURN L200


Had the same thing happen on my '02 Saturn L200 a few years ago. The brights would come on every now and then when using the turn signal, but after a while they would stay on and the turn signal/headlight switch handle would flop around. After taking it apart, it turned out the plastic on the inside was broken. The switch was relatively inexpensive (<$50) from the dealership and easy to install for the somewhat mechanically inclined.

Have 2002 Saturn L200: The auto headlights come on by themselves, in the middle of the night. Also, bright lights come on when using the turn signal.


get rid of this car. Sounds like it is haunted! No really get rid of it becaue there is a design flaw in that the timing chain does not get oil and fails. Mine failed at highway speeds at 78,000 miles and screwed up the egine. Only choice was to replace it with a used engine with the same design flaw because no other engine type will fit in this car.
