No tail lights when the headlights are on


Check the fuse for the tails. If it's good, then possibly a shorted out light switch, or a problem in the body control module (BCM).
I replaced a light switch recently, without disconnecting the battery. When done, the headlights were fine, but no tail lights. Turns out I blew the tail light fuse by not disconnecting the battery before starting.
Good luck.

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.

My headlights wont turn off on my 2003 dodge intrepid


I own the same year make and model. The headlights are supposed to stay on for a few minutes if you shut them off after shutting off the engine. This is a safety feature. These are the headlights only. If the lights, side markers and taillights stay on, then the issue is most likely the switch. You will have to pull the switch and disconnect the wiring harness to confirm this. If the lights go out, then the switch is bad.
However, if the lights don't go out, or the headlights never shut off until they drain the battery, you may want to take the car in to get diagnosed. There could be an issue with the body control module or wiring. Most likely, it is the switch as Chrysler uses the cheapest parts for their switches, but I would check it first and not swap parts. All you have to do to check the switch is pull the bezel it sit in out of the dash. The switch is held in with two screws.
