You probably have a shorted headlight switch, which would need to be replaced. Does your car come equipped with auto-off lights? That's the type that can be left on, and shut themselves off after 30 seconds or so of having the ignition off. If this is the case, you may also have a stuck relay. Look under the hood for your relay box, and see if any are labeled as operating the headlights. Since a relay is a mechanical switch, you can tap on it lightly but firmly a few times to unstick it, if it is actually stuck. Try it out and see if it works.

How to fix non working headlights


First check your fuses. If ok. Turn your headlight switch and see if rear parking lights turn on. If they do more than likely your headlight switch is not your problem. If running lights dont come on, check your headlight switch operation..

Did you check for power in and out of the headlight switch ?
You should have power on the red and orange wires going into the switch and yellow going out to the dimmer switch.

Headlights wont work properly


Sounds like you have a problem in your headlight switch. As far as them staying on sometimes when you shut the car off are you referring to daytime running lamps or the regular headlights? If it's daytime running lamps that like to stay on and your headlights do not like to turn on then there could be a combination of headlight switch and daytime running lamp relay.

It is possible the relay gets the signal from the headlight switch as well, since they generally turn off when you turn your headlights on.

Headlights wont turn on


The sound system was causing to much of an unpredictable power usage on the headlights and the fuse has blown as a safety precaution.
