Check your headlight relay. Sounds like its stuck in a closed position and needs replacing. It could be your hi-low switch in the steering column is sticking due to dirt or wear, spay in some lubricant and operate it back and forth swiftly

Possible that the switch is short or the relay is contacting as it is stuck on without releasing.
Open the hood and tap the relay box to see it this releases.
If so check the relay unit.

Head light problems sometimes they will not shut off sometimes they (low beams) come on by themself high beam will not shut off


Are you sure there not running in daytime running light, when you think high beams are on

Also, there is sensor on the dash, usally on the speaker grate, that senses night and day. In the daytime your headlights will automatically come on when your car is in drive, and be on the high beam bulb, but dimmer than regular. At night, or in low light conditions, your lights will automatically switch from daytime lights to regular low beams. And yes, even when your switch on the dashis turned off, your lights work automatically.

To turn of the auto setting, just push the override button for your dome light, in and out 3 times, you should hear a chime, and your lights should shut off. This setting resets everytime you shut your vehicle off. Or to turn the auto setting back on, push the over ride button 3 more times.

High beams don't work


Hi,

Most of the time when the high or low beams don't work you have a bad dimmer switch. I would reccomend getting it replaced.
