I was always told to push the brake pedal down first, then release the emergency brake, then, if you have a clutch, push that pedal down put it in gear and go! The same for an auto trans, and the point is so that you don't have the cars weight on the pin inside the auto tranny that locks the transmission in park. Also you wont be putting the cars weight on that first gear in a manual tranny. hope that helps?!

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.
