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.

I have a 97 nissan pickup and the head lights will not turn on, an the tail lights will not shut off. had to take fuse out to turn off tail lights. turn signal switch??


Yes it sounds like the switch is stuck in the park position.
You could pull the harness plug for the switch and check the circuits with a meter, or replace the switch.

My tail lights wont shut off


usually when the headlights goes off so does the tail lights thats mean the brake light switch but the side markers are staying on too. it can't be the fuse since they still light. the only thing that breaks the currant is the switch. it sounds like there,s a problem with the headlight switch. the headlight switch operates the side markers and the tail lights along with the head lights.

I have a 1996 Saab 900 when I start the car and turn on the head lights the dash lights will turn on and then go out. Along with the dash lights, the radio lights and the lights along the shifter...


It could be a bad connection or a bad headlight switch, but there is also a safety switch on the car that turns the dash lights out when you lose your tail lights, so before you go any further check if your tail lights are working, your car may just be telling you about another problem.

Tail lights stay on


There is a switch that should shut these off when the front door is opened. Have the dealer fix under warranty.

Dash board,head light,tail ligts stays on when engine is off


The P0420 that you are getting may be an inoperative air/fuel sensor (the actual code is "catalyst system efficiency below threshold". This code will not affect the head/tail lamps or dash lights.
You may have a bad headlamp switch.
