MKX 2011 when I turn engine off and leave car headlights on the lights go off after 10 minutes, is there a way to cut down time to few minutes of less?

The autolamp system provides light sensitive automatic on/off control of the exterior lamps. The autolamp system keeps the exterior lamps on for a preselected period of time after the ignition is turned off (20 seconds is the factory default setting). The preselected time lapse is adjustable up to approximately 3 minutes. 10 minutes is too long, put them in the automatic position to have them turn off sooner, if you leave them in the on position it probably has to wait for the battery saver relay to kick in.
