They could be your daytime running lights? I would ask your car dealer or mechanic if you have them.

I went into town, turned off truck, headlights were working. Came out of store and no headlights. All the other lights, running lights, brake lights, signal lights work, but not headlights.


I guess you are saying that after you turned the ignition off, the headlights and all lights went off, but when you returned and turned ignition on all lights but the headlights came on. "a gremlin" stole my light switch? Possible, but most likely your headlight switch is bad, or the headlight relay, or if the dimmer switch makes no difference, It could be power supply or connection to the headlight dimmer relay is bad. Corrosion causes funny behavior. Clean bright metal connections make a world of difference. Follow headlight wiring back to a small box usually on the inside fender of the Engine bay. Check all connections including the ground to the frame (body metal).

1987 toyota pickup lost all electrical except headlights


What works? Just headlights? Does anything electrical work that does not need the ignition switch to be in the on position? Possibly four way flashers, brake lights, horn, interior light, dash lights in instrument panel as well as headlights should all work without the key in the ignition and in the acc or on position. If this is what you have, then I would say you need to replace the ignition switch.
Hope this helps.

2002 Grand Marquis headlights won't turn off with switch, won't go out until vehicle is turned off


Might these be "driving lights"?
Cars with "driving lights" have lights that are supposed to stay on all the time the engine is running.
These lights not only look like headlights, in fact some cars even have the headlights themselves come on when the engine is running. Look as some more (several) 2002 Grand Marquis's and see if they are the same.
Be blessed.

My headlights will not switch off even when in off position. They will turn off when engine is off , but all points on light switch do not effect them being on.


Most probable cause is defective headlight relay or headlight switch. You have to use a voltmeter to test these components

I had an S-70 with the same problem what happens is the headlight switch tabs that hol it together broke and the switch was slightly separated and connection was not there for the headlights and also check the high beam see if headlights come on i dont think it is a relay or fuse??? proballally the headlight switch and easy to replace you even can use one from an 850 model
