View Full Version : Headlights won't turn off.

May 27th, 2006, 14:10
Yes, I searched the forum.
My girlfriend's '97 Cherokee's headlights will not turn off. I don't think it has the "headlight sentinel" widget. I think there is a blown relay somewhere but I keep reading posts that state there are no headlight relays on these machines. I even bought a Haynes manual today but it was of little use. She's had the machine for a few years and her brother owned it before that and they both swear it does not have headlight delay.

I took the headlight switch out from under the dash, unplugged it, and the headlights STILL STAYED ON. I checked every fuse and cleaned the contacts on every relay I could find. Still stayed on.

In other words, "I'm confused". I can't find a straight answer anywhere and, frankly, you guys are my only hope!

If I don't fix this soon her and her whole family will never look at me the same again!

Thanks in advance.
