93 Maxima Headlights stay on

1993 Nissan Maxima with 200k miles on it

After i turn the car and the lights off the headlights stay on indefinetly. Over the last few years was having a problem with one staying on, pulling the fuses and playing with the lights got it to turn off, now they won't go off at all. Any help appreciated.

Looking at the wiring diagram, it seems like the theft warning system is on the same circuit...it may be a malfunction in that module or the theft warning relay. There is obviously a short to power somewhere in the system.

was able to get them off temporarily by wiggling the turn signal arm until they clicked off, but the slightest bump turns them on. Figure it's got to be a loose connection/short in the steering column, but no clue where or how to get to it

I believe replacement of that switch involves removal of the steering wheel. You can get a steering wheel puller from a local auto parts store. Most will loan you the tool or let you rent it.

Was able to find a free field service manual online, best thing around. Turns out the Light switch on the combination switch had shorted out. Able to get it off by just removing the plastic cover around the steering column 7 screws total not bad, thanks for the help.
