Headlights stay on too long after engine is off

been working on the same issue for a week. fixed it last night after research and trouble shooting. The head lights are controlled by the head light dial/knob on your dash on the left side of your steering wheel. With the knob pushed in, if you shut down your car, the lights should automatically shut off as well. Mine didnt so what I did was i turned off my car, disconnected the positive battery terminal located inside a fist sized red box on the right side of your engine. Then I took off the dash panels to get to the actual connection on the headlight switch/dial/knob. I disconnected it and put it all back together. It fixed the problem.It worked for me, maybe theres an easier or faster way of fixing it but this worked. Good luck.

All lights work except rear lights for driving at night, what happend two days earlier i went to turn on headlights an pulled the whole knob outta the dash an just stuck it back in, got the headlights on...

I can't see the switch causing the rear lights to fail without affecting the headlights also. Is it possible that the only headlights you got to work at the time are the daylight headlights - for visibility during the daytime? the breaklights work so you've not got faulty lights. Also the fact that both left and right brake lights work points to the switch as being the culprit. Is it possible that when you reinstalled the knob it's just not placed on there correctly? That would prevent the switch from possibly operating correctly. Check your turn signals. If they both work that should instill confidence that the switch is the culprit. If you're brave (I don't know your level of "handymanness") you could pull the switch knob off again and this time look very closely at the knob and the post it slides onto. Most knobs (I believe yours should twist, not pull, but I'm not sure as you don't list the model) press onto a post that is "D" shaped. The knob has a corresponding recessed hole that is also shaped like a "D" Assuming (yeah, it makes an xss out of you and me...) that you placed the knob correctly the first time is it possible that the dash cutout is limiting the switch movement? This would only occur if the knob wasn't placed correctly. I'm not sure again because you don't list the model. If all else fails then replace the switch - available at most all auto parts stores. Good luck!

08 Yaris, Dashlights/radio/ and nobs lights do not come on

I had the same problem. On the the dash on the left side near the steering wheel, there is a wheel like knob. Roll the knob until your dash lights come on when you have the headlights on. If its rolled in one direction they're off in the other they're on.

I have a 95 Cherokee sport and the headlight do not come on. We have checked the fuses and they appear to be good. Is there a circuit breaker for the headlight system?

Late one night on the way home from a night at a friends cabin on a lake, my headlights stopped working. So I stopped, after driving to a safe spot holding in the headlight high beam selector for emergency lights for about 15 mins. I checked all the fuses, with a tester, as well as a visual check, and they were all good, so I checked the relays by switching in some spares I have, and nothing. So I drove the last 20 minutes home holding the signal switch towards me, and went to bed cursing my luck. The next morning, bright and early on a Sunday morning, I tore into the dash, with 2 suspected broken switches in mind, and with brand new replacements next to me.

Now I am a novice mechanic, I can do almost any simple task- u joints, driveshafts ect, but this was a major-league pain in the ****. You have to take the whole dash out, and take the instrument cluster out, after taking the steering wheel off, in order to even see the back of the headlight switch. So I changed it, after cursing the Chrysler gods for putting such a simple part in such a stupid location. And on a good hunch, I also changed the signal light switch, at the same time.

Long story short, mopar/jeep/Chrysler uses very craptacular switches, so go aftermarket, unless you want to spend about 4 hours of your quality time changing switches ever year.

The main/high beam relay/switch must be stuck on high presuming the high beam stalk selector does not operate. Probably needs replacement.
