Sounds like the high beams are burnt out. Rare that both burnt out at the same time but not impossible.

Most likely they are burned out and need to be replaced.

Have your Alternator tested. Sounds like the entire engine is running off just the battery.

I had a problem with my headlights going off, not the high beams. Replaced the rectangular silver can thingy at the fuse panel under the dash on the drivers side. I put a higher rated one in, which is a no no, but it solved the problem of the headlights going out.

The Kia Sorrento instrument panel lights go on and off with the headlights. The headlights go on with an automatic daylight sensor.

if both headlights went put it is probably a blown fuse

Headlights have two filaments, one for dim, one for bright. From your description it appears that one of the high beam filaments is burned out. Replace the bulb.

This is usually an indication that the dimmer switch is in need of replacement.

You have to go to the dealer and ask them to turn them off, otherwise they leave them on as running headlights. They will do this for free.

A light that is put outside of your house that is fairly bright. If something crosses it an alarm will go off in which telling you somebody is there

i would assume you need to turn your headlights off as they are the most common reason for the beeping after you turn off the car. My headlights are off and the car is still beeping

You can with some vehicles. Consult the drivers manual.

The headlights go up and down when you turn the headlights on. If they are not going up or down they may be disconnected from the motor. You would have to take the headlights out to see if they are disconnected or not.

its to conserve power to start veh. with full voltage to starter headlights will come on after starting car

If there are not "short's to ground", you probably have a faulty circuit breaker for the headlights.

User Avatar

Bad connection, bad ground, switch problem check the bulb are places to start

When the headlights don't turn off when you turn off the car, the issue is probably a stuck relay. If you disconnect the battery for a few minutes they will go out. This is just a temporary fix until you can get it to a mechanic.

Go to Autozone, when you purchase the bulbs, they'll put them in for free

if they are daytime running lights you can not shut them off without pulling the fuse. but if you are parked and want them to go off you can apply the emergency brake and they will go off til you let off the emergency brake.
