Help! Headlights won't turn off!

Postby tomatoes4all » 15 Feb 2011, 09:01

Hi all,
the head lights of my 1992 960 won't switch off. :?: :?: Lately the lights have been very slow to switch off after shutting off after the vehicle after has been driven with the lights on. The "walk-home" function ( or leaving the head lights on 'till you're at the front door so to speak) has worked well and switches off after a few minutes. Well, today they don't. I have removed fuses 6 and 7, so lights are off, so at least I can start the car tomorrow morning. Is there anyone who can help, please? Thank you and best regards from South Australia, Erik.

Your headlight functions are different than here, we do not have "walk home" but a faulty relay comes to mind.

That might be worth looking into.

Thank you for that reply. Where is the head light relay located, so I can try this?
Thanks and best regards, Erik.

It is located in the center console, here it is on the passenger side, the gray plastic panel has to be removed.

That would be driver's side for you, Eric. My relay array on my 960 is also driver's side being RHD.
