    My car is having a problem of passenger side light (low beam) being always on even after turning the switch or engine off. I have to unplug it to prevent it from draining the battery.

    I am not too familiar with electrical system on the Prius, but suspect bad relay or something related.

    Anyone knows where the relay for the headlight is?

    Are you out of warranty? Why mess with it?

    I don't think a relay would cause a single headlight to stay on, maybe both, are you sure the other low beam isn't burned out?

    Turned out that it was bad integration relay. Dealer replaced it under warranty today.
