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.

Why won't my headlights come on?

if it is your running lights that wont come on, your emergency brake could be on, or the sensor may be reading that it is on. this defeats the running lights. you will know this is happening because the emergency brake light will be on. if this is the case, reach under the drivers side door and with the e-brake off, wiggle the e-brake cable back and forth. the running lights should come back on once the emergency brake cable is in the off position.
