Does not cutting my headlights off manually when I turn the car off effect the life of the car's battery?
The battery died Sat...I think someone left door slightly ajar, but my son-in-law thinks its because I didn't cut the
lights off manually....I always operate the car with headlights on.
Your son-in-law is correct. If you manually turn on the headlights they will stay on even with the car off and key out. Nothing wrong with using your lights as daytime running lights, low beam. but you must turn them off. But I don't think you need to turn them on in the first place, that car has automatic daylight running lights
