i own an 03 concord limited. my dash lights except for the miles and transmission positioning go off. the come on and stay on longer the colder it is what is wrong with this car
I have same problem have you figured it out yet?
you didnt specify year, but its time delayed electronically. Assuming they do eventually turn off, all is well. It's 1995 Cadillac Concours the interior lights, and head lights go out when I cut the car off but the dashboard lights stay on.
I have a 2003 chevy cavalier instrument clusterpanel lights stay on with the car off and it crank up and run fine but none of the gauges work after i put a new battery
Try turning them off. This is done with the dimmer control of the dash lights.
There are many reasons why a head light would stay on when car is off. These lights could be automatic.
Why do interior lights stay on when engine is shut off on 2001 Lincoln Continental car?
Figure it out...
Check the owner's manual first, then the manufacturer's web site. Many cars have a feature that allows the lights (including the dash lights) to stay on long enough to get out of the car and inside your destination before turning themselves off. Many are adjustable if you find out how.
depends on the car, most common problem for loss of dash lights are from having the switched turned down too low or off.
pretty much, if your impalas like mine, when you start the car, your headlights will come on, but you should have a little nob to the left of your steering wheel. it should be in the middle, if you pull it out, your lights will stay on, even after turning off your car, if you push it all the way in, your lights will turn off, you can also turn it to adjust brightness of dome lights and dash lights.
if you leave the parking lights switch "ON" the lights will remain on, even if the car has been turned off.
If parking lights stay on after the car is turned off on a 2001 Hyundai Elantra than the brake switch is malfunctioning. The brake switch turns off when pressed in and if it does not work the lights of the vehicle will stay on.
Could be the dash light switch is turned off.
check your headlight switch or dash dimmer switch to be sure you do not have them turned on.
Most newer models of cars now have a safety design that allows the headlights to stay on for a few minutes before shutting themselves off to allow the occupants to safely get to a door or gate. Also, on many newer model vehicles, if the lights are turned off before the ignition, the lights will stay off. If the lights are turned off after the ignition, the lights stay on to illuminate your way. If the light switch is off and the lights stay on longer than a few minutes, then something is wrong.
What causes the dashboard light to stay on after your car has been turned off? 1994 Buick Century.
There is a power or ground wire hooked up backwards. (95%sure)
Hey Humayun==It would help if you stated what kind of car you have. If you have automatic headlights there is a module under the dash that controls them and it is bad. On some cars, the lights stay on until the door is opened. GoodluckJoe
Delay if they do not go off after the delay time look for faults in the BCM
your fuse is blown. car manufacturerers make the dash lights go off when the tail light fuse blows so you know it is blown.
Those systems you mentioned will work normally with the engine off, if you are saying that you cannot shut them off at all then the multi function switch for the lights is faulty or damaged.
Because the lights were turned on manually instead of letting the automatic headlight illumination circuitry do its own thing. Turn the switch to "OFF" - it's part of the turn indicator arm.
Some cars have as luxury option it gives you some time to get out of the car and see the road (if it's dark around). PS: If lights stay for couple minutes and go off it means that it's suppose to be like that. If it does not go off at all you need to check computer codes.
Most likely poor wiring.
