asked by on

Last night my headlights came on and I couldn't turn them off. The next day I got a new battery installed it and the headlights still wouldn't go off. My turn signal also wouldn't turn off. I took out the headlight bulb and the bulb was smoking almost on fire. The car is driving fine it's not stalling. What could've made my headlights just turn on and burn out.

My car has 161000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
