Turn off Daylight Headlights on 2000 VW Golf

Want to turn off daylight headlights. I do not drive on two lane roads, which I think they started this as a safety issue.

Just bought this car, (from my daughter), and I want to make it as economical as possible. I remember hearing that daylight lights cost about 1.5 MPG.

Give that to me, not to the middleeast.

I don't think they do to be quite honest. I have the same car, 2000 Golf, and there is no way to turn off the headlights completely.

Headlamps stay on 5 minutes or more when car is turned off and locked. Headlamp switch doesn't seem to turn them on or off.


you don`t say but if your car has a delay timer for the headlights then this could be the problem,it is built part of the headlight switch and to repair you replace the headlight switch itself with the same switch.some of these cars also had an daylight sensor in the dash that would detect how much daylight there is and when it gets dark enough it automaticaly turns on the headlights.this system was first installed on the cadillac cars then filtered down to other models in the gm line.its someplace to start.

Headlights turn on by themselves when vehicle is parked.


Do you have auto lights when it gets dark out? When they come on is it in a parking garage or home garage where its dark If so chances are your switch/relay unit is bad. (or do they come on in daylight too)?

Dash light do not come on but lights do for drl on 2005 chev equinox


DRL (Daytime Running Lights) will come on any time you start your car.
The dash lights do not come on, unless your headlights turn on. Either by a daylight sensor or if you manually turn them on by the switch.
So even though your headlights are on with the DRL, if you notice the tail lights do not come on (just like the dash lights don't).

To test if your dash lights do work, turn your headlight switch on. You should the the tail lights and dash lights come on.
