"Question: 1992 Pontiac Grand Am 4 cyl mileage: 78000. I walked out on 1 Jan and found the headlights on. Got the keys to start engine fearing dead battery, the car started right up. The lights were not on the night before. Turned off car, removed key, light switch off, headlights stayed on. Hit high beam, headlights went off, high beams came on. Pulled out headlight control unit from fuse panel, headlights stayed on. Unplugged each light individually and in high beam/headlight pair, thinking it might be a short, lights stayed on. Had to unplug lights to get them off.
Answer: If we did not know better, we would suspect the Y2K bug. Without actually “seeing” your vehicle, it is difficult to diagnose the problem. We are guessing at some damage done to the headlight wiring causing a short between a power wire and the headlight wire."
This leads me to believe that this is a common occurrance with this particular model car. Hope someone has the answer. Thanks.
