Weird electrical gremlin

Postby ahhsigh on Sun, 27 Mar 2022 4:07 +0000

Hello everone. I have a 2004 Toyota Hilux 2.5 D4-D. When i turn the car off and remove the key from the ignition the headlights either stay on or they turn off and on repeatedly. The climate control fans and dash lights also stay on. My "solution" thus far has been to just disconnect the batteries whenever i'm not using the car.

Any advice on how to troubleshoot and what to look for would be much appreciated!

I would start looking at the ignition switch.

If Dave's suggestion shows nothing, then look for a rat / mouse nest. up under the dash or in the engine bay somewhere.
