Have you read the manual? You can turn this feature off. Press the little "AUTO" button on your rear view mirror and the green light beside it will go out. They shouldn't come on again automatically again. Are you saying this resets with every ignition cycle?

Also you can flash the highbeams while they are in auto mode and it will toggle them off of auto mode just as if you had followed ddalder's advice.

No problem. Hopefully that will help you out. I've heard, but I don't know for sure, that in some years the automatic headlights have to be turned on with each ignition cycle. In my 2008, it remembers that last state I left it in.

Interesting. I didn't know this. I'm going to have to try it.

It only behaves like that if the highbeams are active at the time you flash them.

My 2006's Intellibeam is not reset each ignition cycle.

I confirm that this is true on my 2006. It's handy on those rare occasions when Intellibeam doesn't suit conditions.

If you read the manual it's admitting defeat.
