Faulty Headlight Switch

Hi
Has anyone else had a problem with DRL not shutting off, or high-beam indicators flickering? When I shut my car off the DRL's will remain on. I have to restart the car, turn the headlights on, turn them back off, and then shut the ignition off (in that order). Then the DRL's might stay off. I looked through some other forums and found that other Corolla owners had a similar problem and it was thought to be due to a faulty headlight switch. 70,000 Corollas were recalled in Australia/Asia in 2005 for faulty headlight switches.

Thanks - Cynthia

I have a 1998 Corolla that had this problem. It was under warranty at the time, so Toyota fixed it. I believe it was a bad relay, but it may have been more complex. It happened again shortly after they fixed it and then they said their was a short that caused the problem. Unfortunately, after they "fixed" it again, the dash lights stopped turning on automatically after dark. This is still a problem to this day. Good luck!
