Mine don't, though there supposedly is a feature where they will turn off before you get a dead battery. I say supposedly since I've left the lights on before and come back to a dead battery. Another time, though, it shut the lights off before that happened.

When in the auto position the head lights turn off automatically about 20 seconds after I turn off the engine.

If I set my lights to "ON" they will stay on, or I think they will. Most cars have a "AUTO" setting for the lights, they turn off a few seconds after you exit the car.

I keep mine set to "AUTO", they come on automatically when it starts to get dark and they turn off by themselves after I get out and lock the doors with the key fob.

They can be set to turn off, or not turn off.

My newish (2012) has a similar feature. If you accidentally leave the lights on they will shut down on their own and save the battery.

Mine will if I leave them on the 'automatic' setting. They should also shut off in twenty minutes if I leave them on with the other settings.
