Help!

Pulled the car back into the garage to check everything over and I can't get the headlights to shut off! I've messed with the light switch and even used the fob to lock it and they stay on for at least 5 minutes. I just checked and they finally shut off, but it took "forever". When the key's is taken out of the ignition, the chime keeps chiming like the lights are on???? Any ideas??

Thanks!

Did you check the switch on the end of the turn signal stalk?

Yup, but just played with it again and it looks like I'll need a new switch.

Thanks for your help.

Are you sure it wasn't the twilight sentinel?

Have you turned the delay knob way down or off? Sometimes if that's high it can take forever for the lights to actually shut off, especially if you're waiting for them.

I set it low now, so we'll see if that helps!

One of these days, I'll get all of these "Gremlins" fixed. It's been a great car and a blast to drive and I really appreciate everyone's help!!
