This is called "twilight sentinel". it is programmed into your vehicles electrical system for the lights to remain on for 90 seconds after shutting off the car.

there is a way to disable but i apologize i cannot remember it! it is in your owners manual if you have it.

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.
