Re: Headlights won't go off!
According to my '98 EVTM book (hopefully not much different from your '97),
the relay module is behind the instrument panel, roughly to the left of the
HOWEVER, upon a closer look, I don't believe that its failure would turn on
headlights, instrument and tail lights simultaneously, because there is a
separate relay there for each of those circuits. The main lights switch is
probably your first suspect, followed by the autolamps control on the rear
view mirror. I would disconnect each of those and see what happens before
going any further.
If that doesn't help, I am afraid that you'll need the EVTM (or its CD
version) for a more methodical troubleshooting. The Workshop Manual (vol.
II) is also very handy, as it has a detailed, step-by-step procedure. It's
way too long and complex to quote in an NG posting. Sorry!
