    low beam headlights wont turn off! please help!

    okay so I have 2012 wrx. and last night out of the blue I go to turn off my headlights and they wont shut off. I messed around Flipping the high beams on and off and flipping the on off switch back an forth and they finally shut off. I go inside. come back out 30 minutes later and my low beams are back on again. when I get home I cant get them to shut off at all.

    I will make note I had aftermarket hids installed a month aho....but everything has worked just fine until last night. buy if anyone could please help me I dont know what to do. everything I find online is for the pre 08 wrx that had switch on steering wheel.

    do you mean that even with the power off (engine off, keys out) the lights stay on?

    If that is the case, maybe you have a relay stuck on? Perhaps the relay needs good ground connections in order to shut off, so check over all of the ground wires in the installation to make sure they've got good contact (maybe use a multimeter) too.
