Headlights wont turn off

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I've recently bought a Ford fiesta zetec and can't seem to turn the headlights off when the car is on. I've looked in the manual and it states the off switch but when I do this, if anything the lights seem to get brighter. 

Does anybody else have this issue of can they help please?

Turn it to sidelights, if your headlights go off then it's the daytime running lights (DRL's) you can see.

By the fact you had no idea what a DRL is, chances are everything is fine and your headlights are turning off as normal.

DRL's have been mandatory on new model cars for nearly 10 years now.

That is showing the Auto-lights position. Turn it anti-clockwise (to O) to turn them off, however the car will always go back to auto-lights when you next turn on ignition, it does on mine anyway.

Are the main headlights and rear lights on? If they are, then there maybe a problem with the sensor. We are not talking about the LED strip in or around the headlights which are DRLs These come on without the rear lights on.
