Headlight stuck on 2006

Hi

Sometimes (often) my headlights won't shut off.

They stay on and drain my battery.

So I Installed a switch on my negative battery post so as to take it out of circuit.

Many threads on this phenomenon but they are all over the map and not one silver bullet fix.

Our Yankee cousins seem to spend most of their rants on the concept of DRL (i.e why do we have Daytime Running Lights?).

Also many horror stories of dealerships charging thousands of dollars trying to fix the fault...to no avail.

Some of the suspect components are: Anti-Theft/ Auto Light sensor, Headlamp Switch, Complete Dash assembly,

a gearbox component and a new one, a micro switch in the steering column being wore out.

Has anybody came across this fault?

Where can I find a schematic (with DRL)?

Much obliged.

Doog
