Headlights turning on by themselves

Asked by Nov 25, 2017 at 05:08 PM about the 2008 Toyota Corolla

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The headlights in my 2008 Toyota Corolla keep
turning on by themselves, even though they’re
definitely switched off. And it makes my battery go
flat every night, and the only way it doesn’t go flat is
if I take out the relay for the headlights. I went and
bought a new relay, but it hasn’t fixed it. Does
anyone know what the problem is?

Could be the headlight switch or the wiring. Have a shop that does electrical work check it out for you instead of replacing parts.
