You might want to check the relay for replacement.

Autozone online should list it with price and availability.

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus that was running great when I parked it yesterday. Today it will not turn over, all electrical is out.


Dead battery. You must have left the headlights on or something. Sometimes when you turn your lights on from the passenger side without opening the driver-side door, the headlights may not go out automatically. Been there, done that!

Why will the headlights not turn off when ignition is turned off?


I will fill in the blanks....you must have a newer car with auto head lights....there is a setting on the headlight switch that lets you over ride the "automatic" headlight mode....maybe you or someone accidently turned it to the manual "on" position...if so turn it back to the "auto" setting......2nd....new cars do have a delay before the headlights go out after parking your car. And if you read your manual, you would see that the time they stay on after turning your ignition key off can be set to several different time settings, including to switch off as soon as you turn the key off.
But if you had accidently turned the light switch to the "on" setting.... fear not....the headlights will automatically go off after the battery is dead....lol....actually they should go off within 2-3 minutes of turning the key off...unless you have an open door or trunk...or engine hood...or maybe even a gas cap door...and your car is telling you "something's open" by the lights staying on....Take that Jim and see if it gets you anywhere.

I have a 92' Park Avenue that the headlights turn off sometimes and sometimes they don't. Where would the delay switch be if it has one? I'm going to check out the relay switch next, I g


Cant say for sure, but you may be laying something on the sensor that turns the lights on, and causing car to think its night time, and turning on lights. The sensor that controls this is on dash ,drivers side near windsheild.

Headlights don't come on automatically


One way to turn off the automatic headlights when the ignition is to apply the parking brake. That dinging sound you hear when you shift into drive is also common with the parking brake applied.

Release the parking brake.

Running headlights won't turn off when car is shut down, why?


Are you sure that you do not have a delay timer on these lights? This is a feature that keeps the lights on for a set amount of time for you to see your way to the door or whatever. My light timer is on a 30 second hold before turning off.

Headlights will not open or close on my 88 daytona. Worked fine until I stopped at store. Came out and they would not open again. Fuse and circuit breaker ok. Getting power to motors. If I open them...


Hello
This problem is more than likely the headlight door relay module, the relay is located in the top center of the dash where a speaker would be.
If the headlights do not come on as well as the door don't open then the problem may be the headlight switch, it controls the headlights and the ground side of the relay closing coil. The relay should be fairly cheap. The headlight switch is very cheap as well, to replace it you reach behind the switch and press the silver button at the rear top of the switch, at the same time pull the knob out, once the knob and shaft are out just remove the male threaded nut that secures the switch to the dash panel. Also make sure you like for heat damage to the wires in the connector to the switch, all the terminals should be bright metal, if they are discolored the connector must be replaced with a repair connector. See picture of switch below.

Multi faceted electrical gremlin... Headlights (almost) constantly on. Once you turn the on they don't turn off, sometimes after disconnecting the battery they will turn off but not usually. Also, dome...


I love gremlins. ok first thing first. the headlights, you will see a fuse box in the engine compartment near the battery. remove the cover and you will find fuses and relays. if there is no label showing you which is which (look under the lid you just took off), feel them. the one very very hot is the one that controls the headlights (if they are stuck on a the time you do that.) replace that. it should sort out your headlight issue and possibly the interior lights.
now on to the interior lights. you haven't mentioned a blown fuse, i presume you did check them. same thing. check all the relays for one that is very hot, your door would be open anyways so the interior lights will be on at the time. replace that relay.
as a side note the headlight issue could be caused by the daytime running light module often bolted right to the firewall.
Those would be a good start and hopefully slay the gremlins
