Why would your lights and horn not shut off?

Have you checked for a relay that might have been damaged when the fuse blew? With an overcurrent, it is possible for the relay to pick up and then become 'welded' so it will not release. If you find the relay and remove the cover, the contacter should move when you apply a little pressure to it. If this doesn't happen, replace the relay. Much harder to check would be if insulation melted during the overcurrent and fused power to a horn and light wire. Relay for sure.

If your anti - theft system is sounding (horn honking/lights flashing) you can shut it off by pressing the panic button on your key fob.

The alarm brain is located in the rear of the SUV, in the jack compartment. You can disable it temporarily by removing the horn fuse, or by unplugging the harness from the brain. Unfortunatly the latter will cut your interior lights, but at least your horn won't sound off everytime you shut off your truck.

Why do interior lights stay on when engine is shut off on 2001 Lincoln Continental car?

Your vechile is equipped with 'Senteniel Lighting' which means, after you shut your vehicle off, the lights will remain on, for the duration you have it set for. If your lights fail to shut off, even with senteniel disabled i would have the switch, or the headlight relay examined.

No. The lights are switched independently of the transmission.

disconnect + on battery; when reconnected, you must reset alarm via trip switch (refer to your owner's manual regarding exactly how to reset -- for example, hold in button for xx seconds until alarm stops then release)

The parking lights on a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix will not shut off if the switch has become damaged or the wiring has a short. This will trigger the lights to stay on regardless of the input from the driver.

If the Explorer is running engaging the parking brake is supposed to turn the daytime running lights off , otherwise the daytime running lights are supposed to shut off when the engine is shut off . I have a 2004, Eddie Bauer Explorer. On the light switch itself, there is a selection to turn on or off the day lights, as well as the extended, courtesy lights after ignition is turned off.

All headlight bulbs must all be grounded and working.

I had this problem when I shut off the vehicle while the brake pedal was still depressed. I would recommend you start the vehicle up, turn on all lights, then shut back off and turn vehicle off without have foot on brake pedal. These vans havea feature which keeps the lights on for a short period after the vehicle has been shut down, but I think there is a fault in this feature when you turn off the vehicle with the brake pedal pressed, which causes the brake lights to stay on even though the vehicle is off

Possibly the brake light switch at the brake pedal has stayed depressed or stuck.

In the center of the dash on the left side is a timer relay. it is probably bad, causing the delay part of the lights to not work.
