Q: The high beam dash light stays on after the engine is shut off and the key is removed.

asked by on

The high beam indicator comes on after the engine has been turned off and key removed from switch engine off and continues to stay on. The only way to get it off is to disconnect battery. Daylight driving or night it works as should. It will even blink at you at times. I guess it likes me.
