Stop headlights from being on all the time the car is running

Asked by Sep 03, 2007 at 08:01 PM about the 2003 Pontiac Vibe GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

GM came out with the safety headlight on automatically when you start the car.  I have gone through 5 sets of head light bulbs and want the lights to only come on when I turn them on!  How do I accomplish this?

This is one of the easiest features to disable safely. There should be a relay marked DRL in the under-hood fuse compartment. Pull this relay and the lights will only come on when the switch is on.

Another way is to put your ignition in the on position. raise your emergency brake up one click. (you just disabled your headlights if your light switch is in the off position). start your car. You will have no headlights. Your parking break is not engaged on click one. Now leave your break in this position and the next time you start your car, you put your key in and go straight to start. now if you need to set your brake do so, then when you are ready to start your car release the break then go up one click then start as normal once you go through process a few times, you will be a pro. oh if you want your lights, turn on the light switch or release the break. .

Note if you follow the steps above a night you will need to shine a light on the sensor on the dash passengeger side. 1. Turn off car 2. Pull break 3. Shine light on the sensor (20 secs) 4. Start car Had to do this at the drive in tonight lol
