Are the parking lights staying on along with the head lamps? Is it the high or low beams? Does this have the automatic headlamp feature?


Quote
BATTERY SAVER CONTROL
When the combination switch (lighting switch) is in the 2ND position (ON) and the ignition switch is turned from ON or ACC to OFF, the battery saver control feature is activated.

Under this condition, the headlamps remain illuminated for 5 minutes, unless the combination switch (lighting switch) position is changed. If the combination switch (lighting switch) position is changed, then the headlamps are turned off.

Do the wipers work? Are these halogen or xenon headlamps? Sorry for all the questions, but the more information the better.

Re: 2005 nissan altima headlights stays on Sign In

Do you have a wiring diagram? The body control module gets switched input from the headlamp switch. When the head lamp switch is turned on the BCM will send a datalink message to the IPDM (integrated power distibution module) The CPU inside the IPDM gets the message and grounds the low beam headlamp relay coil to close the relay contacts that allow power to the low beam head lamp filaments.



I can tell you that you will probably need an enhanced scan tool to look at BCM and IPDM data stream information. There is probably also some bi directional control you can do with the right scan tool to command the low beam head lamp relay. I've been reading they are having a lot of issues with the IPDM on those.
