Do your headlights shutoff automatic after vehicle is turn off...

I don't use this feature all that much with my Honda Accord.....

When you turn the vehicle back on, the lights come on automatic again.....

Great for those who leave their headlights on.......

Do you have this feature which is quite common in vehicles today and do you use it much...................

I like this feature but I don't use it much....

I forget I have this feature because my wife's we use the most and it does not have this feature.....

With this option the headlights also come on when the engine start up after being turned off.....

Some folks I know that have this option never put their headlights on manually anymore......

I never use this feature much on my Accord because we use my wife's Civic the most, for running errands and her car doesn't have this feature......

I have it but I remember to turn off my headlights. In my 2001 Camry as soon as I open the driver door with the key to the accessory or off position the lights come off. When I get in and turn the key to the on position they come back on. I don't have auto lights. All this time the light stock is on the "on" position.

davisadm says " Mine do, but I would rather turn them off and on manually. Because of this automatic feature, when switching to a car without auto lights, it is easy to forget to turn them on at dusk, and also to turn them off when you park. "

davisadm. I know where you are coming from with your posting....

My Honda Accord does has this option while my wife's Civic does not and I left the headlights on with her Civic and killed the battery....

You can get use to this option and enjoy it very much but be sure to remember the vehicle that doesn't have this option....if not you could be sorry like me......
