Same ar the light in the refrigerator. Put your cell phone on movie, place it under the hood to capture the light when the hood is closed. Close the hood. Count to ten, open the hood. Turn off the video on the phone and play it back. If the video shows the light going out, that is not the problem. If it stays on, check the switch to make sure it is making contact to turn it off and onl

If they stay on, until you replace the switch, pull the fuse by left (driver) front headlamp harness connector. It's in a small 2" black fuse cover with a hinged snap cover on the wire leading to the hood lamp on that side. Easy to pop it in and out without taking lamps apart.
