Question headlights wont shut off

I have a 2005 suziki verona. I noticed today that my headlight wont shut off. the switch is turned off. I removed the fuses and the lights go off. however when i unhooked the left headlight i put the fuse back in to see what would happen and the bright light came on. there are no other lights on, on the car. can someone please help me figure out how to get them to go off

Stuck relay most likely. Either the lo/hi beam relay, or DRL related.

Thank you for responding. Are the lo/hi relays located in the fuse area under the hood?
When I got my Verona, it was used and did not have a manual. I hope this is something I can repair on my own without taking it to a Suzuki dealer.

I am sorry, I posted my last post in haste.
I made a call to Autozone, and found the relay (large black square in fuse box under the hood).

The way I have been handling the low beams staying on, was to simply pull the two fuses (low beam) and place them back in when I drive at night. Keeping the battery from being ran down.

Today, I placed them back in. Lights in the off position, the lights came on (low beam).
With the low beam fuses in, I switched out the relay (‘Head Lamps” with “Fuel Pump – same size and voltage). – lights were still on
I placed the relays back.
I then decided to pull the “Hi Beam” fuse. – low beams went out.
The fuses (low and hi) are all in good shape. I even tested using the “spare” fuses at the bottom of the box. I had not tried the “hi beam” fuse before, since it was the low beams staying on.
After this, I place the “hi beam” fuse back in, and unplug the actual hi beam lights themselves. When I disconnected the left side hi, the left side low went out. Same for the right as well. I connected everyting back up, and turned on my hi beams. All lights came on.

So, for now, I have the “hi beam” fuse pulled, and can drive at night without plugging and pulling fuses. Just no hi beams for country driving. This one really has me puzzled. Any ideas what could be tying the hi beams to the low beams staying on?
