I left the lights on (headlights), will they go out on thier own or stay on till the battery dies?

Asked by Nov 25, 2013 at 07:54 AM about the 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan

Question type: General

Was in a hurry to get a bus, got out and forgot to turn the lights off. Interior lights weren't on just the outside lights. Just wondering if I need someone to meet me to get a boost after work.

If your vehicle has Auto headlights and the system was in the auto position they will turn off automatically, but if it doesn't have auto headlights then no they will not turn off. And remember that the alternator is only designed to keep a good battery charged not to charge a dead battery.

some of the newer vehicles will turn the lights off after a few minutes even if you don't have automatic lights. my 2008 ram will cut them off after about 10 minutes if I forget. and I don't have automatic lights. you may be fine.
