Headlights don't come on automatically


One way to turn off the automatic headlights when the ignition is to apply the parking brake. That dinging sound you hear when you shift into drive is also common with the parking brake applied.

Release the parking brake.

I have 98 toyota corolla ce and the headlights stay on everytime i turn the engine on...my question is how can i turn them off in the daytime???


In Canada it's mandatory to have DRL(Daytime Running Lights). Your Corolla probably has this feature built in. it is a safety thing however I can understand you wanting them off if it's not the law where you live.
In our 1998 Corolla, I use the parking brake all the time - every time I park - and I've noticed the lights do not come on until I release the parking brake after starting the motor. When I park the car, until I shut off the engine, the lights stay on regardless of the parking brake status however, if I shut off the engine and restart with the parking brake on, the lights do not come on.
If you "adjust' the parking brake switch(i.e.: make e-brake light in your dash it stay on all the time) your lights will not go on until you turn them on via the multifunction lever(left side of wheel). This of course negates the benefits of the e-brake light working correctly (warning you that your e-brake is on or that your brake fluid level is low) which in itself is not so safe!
There is a fuse/relay (I think) in the big fusebox under the hood that has a DRL "spot", you might want to check if you can remove it and still turn the lights on manually when you want them on. Alternately, there is a fuse in the interior fuse box(in Canadian models anyway) labelled DRL. When that fuse is out, it seems the lights only turn ob when I turn them on manually.
Hope this helps and God bless,
Gilbert

Is there a way to turn the headlights off while car is running.We want to go thru Christmas display and they require you drive with park lights only. My lights come on automatically.


I THINK if you barely put on the parking brake, just enough to make the lights go off, but not drag, you will be OK. Try it and see if the lights go out when the parking brake is applied.

How to turn off my chevy tracker headlights while i drive.


If you have the day-time running lights, you will have to find the fuse and pull it. They make these daytime running lights because you get a 10% less chance of an accident. (supposedly)

Shut off daytime running lights?


You can't disable them it's illegal. If you need to shut them off while the engine runs say at drive-in, apply the parking brake (this works on some but not all cars, and don't try driving with parking brake engaged just one click).

Flickering lights


The e-brake light problem is causing your headlight issue.
The e-brake switch is supposed to turn the lights off for you if you are parked and don't want them on.
Make sure your e-brake is released all the way, if OK, check the switch at the E-brake, it will have a single tan wire connecting to it. If you disconnect the wire the headlight issue should go away and you will know it is the switch. Make sure you have the key in the off position so the module resets.
Good luck, let me know.

Headlights won't shut off


No. It has daytime running lights on it. If you set the emergency brake, this should turn out your lights.
