im guessing you have never had a car with day time lights before by the sounds of this question. Most modern cars have what is called daytime lights. They are supposed to be on all day while the car is running for safety purposes. if they remain on for hrs on end after the car is shut down then no that is not normal. AS for the cig lighter check the fuses you will probly find one is blown.
