Thats one for the "Lucas Book".  I suggest start disconnecting wires that
lead up to the head light and see when the light does go out.  It sounds
like that head light is connected to the "always hot" terminal of the fuse
box or is connected up front to a"always hot" bullet connector.  Please let
me know what he finds out.
