Q: Q: Headlights won't turn off

asked by on

The headlights won't turn off and stay on all night. The car is currently dead. I need to jump the battery and figure out why they won't go off.

Something like this is usually caused by a faulty headlight switch or a shorted wire going to the headlights. The source of the problem needs to be inspected so I would recommend having this looked at by a mechanic so they can properly diagnose what’s going on with your headlights and make the necessary repairs.
