Why do headlights stay on with engine off on my 96 Pontiac bonniville?

Is there anything wrong with turning on the headlights before starting the car?
Answer I can't say anything is wrong with having the head lights on when starting the car. However I personally don't recommend having the headlights on when starting the car because you're putting a huge load on your battery and drawing current from many related engine components that are needed when you start your car. Many cars headlights will automatically come on when the engine is started but I would hope and think that these cars have some sort of delay that wont...

Asked in Oldsmobile Silhouette
How do you turn off headlights in a 1998 Oldsmobile silhouette when it is running?
You can only turn off the headlights by applying the emergency brake. When the emergency brake is on, the headlights will not light. Otherwise the best of my expererience is that they are on all the time. If you have remote start, put the emergency brake on before you leave the vehicle and when you remote start it, the headlights will not be on, but the driving lights (if switch is on) will be on as well as the parking lights. ...
