Twist the headlight/turn signal lever knob. Position 1 Parking, tail, license plate, side marker and instrument panel lights Position 2 Headlights and all of the above, If you don't want them on twist the signal lever to the off position........

i have tried all positions,and light still stays on,this car was built in canada,is it some kind of safety thing,it's not really the headlights,it's a smaller light on inside of light fixture.

DRL's are on . The only way to shut them off while parked and engine running is to shut car off ; engage emergency brake (pull up on hand brake); restart car. It wont shut off lights if you just engage emergency brake with car running.
