Disabling automatic headlines when in park


Asked by Oct 04, 2017 at 04:21 AM about the 1998 Buick Century

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This car turns on the headlight at night when I start it up
and am looking for a way to disable this feature. It's  one
thing when it's in drive but i should be able to warm up my
car at night without shining my lights. Any help would be
appreciated, thank you.

You should have a position on your headlight switch that allows you to turn the headlights on and off manually


The device is a pull out knob which does not effect the lights at night. Turning it only dims the internal lights and pulling the knob out will turn them on during the day but pushing it into the "off position does nothing. Is this a defective switch perhaps?
