anyone know how to turn of the headlights
Any ideas on how to turn your headlights off at night (without turning off the car and restarting it) and keeping them off? Ive been looking around and can only find how to turn off the DRLs in the install section. Thanks

I believe disabling the DRL's is the only way.

Yeah... I've had my car for 6 months and am 99.9% sure the only way is to restart the car and leave the parking break up.

I don't even wanna know why someone would need their lights off while driving at night...I can only think of things that result in police reports spineyes

You have disable the drl's. Remove the first portion of the center console and cut the yellow/green wire (#17 i think) on the harness on the bottom right of this picture...make sure to tape up both ends after.

ya pretty much, if I was speeding down a dark road and some cop caught me like a mile back, it's nice to pull into a parking lot and cut the lights without shutting off the enigne and leaving all that hot oil to cook parts.

This is the official way

This also disables the twlight sentinel feature, so you will have to manually turn on your lights.
