    auto headlight question

    So my auto lights won't turn off during the day. I have to turn off the auto setting for them to turn off. What's the deal?

    Turn your wipers off. Headlights come on when wipers are turned on.

    Maybe, maybe not. Auto wipers aren't quite automatic if you have to turn them on. I don't know why the headlights themselves can't be activated by the rain sensors. A minimum run time would prevent on-off-on in intermittent rain.

    Have you ever heard Cosby go on about wipers and dumb guy dumb guy. On a side note when my car was new to me I accidentally turned off the head lights at night on the freeway. That was scary.

    When I first got the car I wondered why the headlights stayed on until a week later when I realized the wipers were on.
