hit the dome light button (small button under headlight switch) four times. The headlights should go off. on some vehicles if you put the e brake on before starting than no lights will come on.

you can also remove the fuse for the daytime running lights, its in the fuse panel on the drivers side dash

I recently swapped the other way, from Silverado to Cheyenne grill when repairing collision damage on a Silverado. I did not care for the plastic/ composite headlights, and the donorparts were from a Cheyenne. All of the bolt holes were there on both trucks to goeither way. After removing the grille, remove the spring/ buckets/ adjusters from the Cheyenne, install the silverado composite headlights (you will need four metric bolts to match the existing headlight bracket retaining nuts in the radiator support of your truck. You will have todo a little rewiring since the connectors are different for the sealed beams and the composite lights. I have seen companies on the net that sell a complete Silverado change over kit. FYI:Be prepared to battle with the composite headlights yellowing and getting dim at night if the truck will be parked outdoors. Areyou interested in selling your Silverado parts? I have a used Silverado grill and headlights I would be willing to trade.

It is possible that the headlights are activated by the alarm. If that is not the case, if it has auto turn on headlights the module can be going bad. Other than that I don't know.

The driver of the moving vehicle is at fault. The parked vehicle may have been parked illegally, but it didn't hit anything.

leave parking lights on or lower beam headlights on

It can mean "at rest" or "not moving" or "sitting in one spot".

it is not possible because it is not moving

If a car is parked (so it wasnt moving, standing still), the other car is in fault.

Yes. Being illegally parked does not affect fault. If you strike a parked vehicle, it is ALWAYS your fault because you have a duty to ensure the way was clear before moving.

Leave the vehicle parked in a bad neighborhood with the doors unlocked.

A safe distance, there is no defined limits of this type as driving near parked cars is situational (at best).

The handbrake is used to stop a stationary car rolling downhill. The transmission can also stop a car from moving when parked.

no matter where a vehicle is parked, the moving vehicle is at fault every time.

Of course it seems like the moving vehicle is. They should have left a note if they were an individual with morals and who would'nt like that to be done to them. ADDITIONAL INFO: Though each accident is handled on a case by case basis, generally the operator of the moving vehicle would be at fault, however instances where a vehicle is illegally parked or grossly impeding traffic may warrant further investigation. In such cases it would be possible to make a case for the illegally parked vehicle be at fault. In such a case of an illegally parked vehicle the owner of the vehicle, even if not deemed at fault, would more than likely at least receive a citation. If such action occurred, then it would be easier for the operator of the moving vehicle, even though they were determined to be at fault, to make a case that if the illegally parked vehicle were not illegally parked in the first place then the accident would have never happened.

If you are parked and you want to here the radio without the Automatic headlights on. Some times if you engage the parking brake it will turn off the automatic head lights.

The driver.Another View: It depends on the circumstances of the collision.If the door struck the side of the moving vehicle, then the person opening the door of the parked car is at fault.If the moving vehicle struck the open door of the parked car, then the moving car is at fault.

Yup, you guessed it! You You are responsible for "a moving violation" because you were moving and the 'parked car' was stationary. Irregardless of the day, time of day, the moon cycles, astrological signs, sun spots, acts of deity's, the paranormal, fate, karma, etc...

If a person hits a parked car, usually the driver of the moving vehicle is at fault. However, state laws might vary. Both were violating laws at the time.

try applying the parking brake when its in park this works for some vehicles

Any time a vehicle hits a parked vehicle or other stationary object, the operator of the moving vehicle is responsible.

Generally the one moving as The expectation is that the driver of a moving vehicle is in control of that vehicle and can safely stop before hitting a stationery object.

It depends if the illegally parked car is a danger or interuption to the normal flow of traffic. For instance if someone is parked in a handicap spot illegally, and you hit them, obviously it is your fault. You need to be able to prove that due to the other persons actions of illegally parking, it inevitably led to you hitting their vehicle. Just remember, you are the one moving, and you are the one who hit the "non-moving" object.
