What might cause the headlights on a 1998 Mercury Mountaineer to stay on for over 10 minutes after the vehicle is shut off and on random occasions the front wipers swipe once and then shut off?

My 2000 Mountaineer has a delayed headlight shut off switch located on the bottom of the rear view mirror. It slides right or left. To the left is off and as you slide it to the right the delay feature gets longer. Farthest to the right could very well be around ten minutes.

It has a built in timer. You can adjust how long they stay on with the sliding lever located on the rear view mirror.

I had to take my mountaineer to a mercury dealer and it took them about 5 minutes. They connected my car to a computer and the computer gave them the code. Its been working ever since they also showed me how to change it if I wanted. Try that!

Unhooking the battery for about 20 minutes should be more than enough to resed the computer.

Headlights are required to be turned on in Tennessee 30 minutes after sunset to 30 minutes before sunrise, when visibility it low, and in adverse weather conditions.
