How do I turn my headlights off while driving at night?

Asked by Dec 18, 2014 at 12:48 AM about the 2006 Subaru Baja Sport

Question type: General

I have a 2006 Baja. Every year I go to a huge Christmas decoration drive though. My headlights are supposed to be off and I got harassed terribly last year because I couldn't get my headlights to turn off. I just did a practice and couldn't get them off. I'm thinking of taking the fuses out.  Is there a simpler way?

Is it the actual headlights or the DRL's? If it is the DRL's then if you just start to set the park brake like to the first click that usually turns off the DRL system and if you park brake is properly adjusted won't apply the brake.

Thank you. I just got a chance to try it. I have the light switch in the off position and I'm testing it at night. The headlights, taillights, side lights, etc. were all on also, so it doesn't sound like its the DRL but it still works. I tried putting a small towel under the slightly raised brake, and that works. I don't need to go up one click which made me nervous. Hopefully my brakes are adjusted properly because this light show is about 3 miles long. I appreciate the advice.

Believe me if they aren't it won't take long to find out as smoke will start rolling out of the wheel wells, but you should feel like the brakes are dragging first, and it takes a little more throttle to make it move.
