Why would the back-up lights come on with the automatic headlights?

if someone has been working on your transmission, then they might have reassembled it incorrectly, or the switch is bad in the transmission. either way, that is the only place that the reverse lights could be trigggered from. take it to a transmission shop would be my suggestion. maybe someone put the tailight sockets in the backup holes

the dash and radio lights are supposed to dim when the headlights come on. Make sure you have the brightness of the dash lights turned up as much as possible.

The best thing I could suggest would be to check the wiring, fuses and switches.

Hey Humayun==It would help if you stated what kind of car you have. If you have automatic headlights there is a module under the dash that controls them and it is bad. On some cars, the lights stay on until the door is opened. GoodluckJoe

I've seen forums that state that you remove the 'DRL' fuse located in the passenger fuse compartment, but there are no fuses labeled 'DRL'. I am well aware that the DRL/ Automatic headlights are a "feature", but it's irritating to neighbors when I start my car at night, and my headlights automatically turn on and shine into their windows. I know that I can turn on the parking lights to shut off the headlights, or push the parking brake in to have it start without the lights automatically coming on, but it would be simpler to just turn the lights on when i want them to turn on. The DRL's are hideous. I have silverstar 3157 bulbs and the car looks much nicer in front without those 2 big orange lights shining.
