my daughters 2002 corolla headlights will come on by themselves when the outside temperature drops down into the teens. of course this drains her battery and car will not start the next morning when she gets in it. this has happened to her three times. one time she saw the lights come on by themselves from her apartment. sure would like to know why and get it fixed. Toyota dealership has been no help.

AnswerThe problem is more than likely due to a fault in the daytime running lights switch or the light sensor on the dash. You can try disabling the daytime running lights and\or removing the automatic light fuse from the fuse box. Here's a link to a website which tells you how to disable the DRLs http://vamp.darkravers.net/cpg/thumbnails.php?album=107

Why do your parking lights stay on when you turn ignition off on a 98 Ford Taurus?

The parking lights may stay on because the headlights have not been turned off completely. If the car is parked, the key is out of the ignition, and the headlights are turned all the way off, the issue is in your electrical system. It will need to be taken to a mechanic to be tracked down and repaired.

Why did car lights originally stay on after the car was turned off?

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 a 2001 Chrysler Sebring V6 3.0 to run with headlights left on but ignition turned off even with the keys removed?

I have a 2002 Chrysler Sebring convertible. If you turn off the ignition and remove the key while the headlights are on, then turn off the headlights, the headlights will stay on for 30 seconds and turn off. You can avoid this by turning the lights off before you turn off the car or by switching them on and off again.

Had trouble starting car put key in turned twice but nothing lights lit up?

Check the battery. Turn headlights on - they will come on with or without the key if it has power from the battery. If lights do not come on, the battery is dead (try jump-starting) or there is a bad connection (loose cable), or a short in the electrical system. If headlights come on, but dashboard lights do not light up - check the ignition (cylinder / switch)

Why do brakelights go off on when the head lights are switched on?

Brake lights should NOT be effected by the headlights. Brake light function is completely independent of the headlights. Assuming you are not refering to the tail lights, or marker lights, which are supposed to come when the head lights are turned on. Not having brake lights when the head lights are on is a big safety problem and should be corrected.
