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.

How do you turn off the automatic headlights on 2000 grand am GT?

You cannot actually turn off the lights while the car is driving or in any gear but park. If you would want to turn the lights off while you are parked for some reason, put the car in park, turn off the car completely, pull the emergency brake up, then restart the car. This overrides the headlights and they will stay off while the car is running-however, as soon as you release the emergency brake- the headlights turn back on.

On the left side there should be a stick for your windshield wipers and a nob on the dash semi-close to the button for the trunk. You turn that nob to set the lights inside and outside the car. The windshield wiper stick if you pull it down, or towards the dash- it should put your brights on.

Firstly, turn the ignition on but don't start the engine, then turn the headlights on, then off, then turn them back on, then off again. (so twice on, twice off) the car should beep at you twice indicating this function has been switched on. To switch off, repeat the same steps above and the car will only beep once.

When you start your 2000 cavalier and put it in gear the daytime running light indicator blinks and the service engine light comes on while the whole time it has no headlights why?

This is caused by one of your headlights being out most likely the brights. turn the car on switch from brights to normal and daylight lights and you will see on is out, you just need to replace the headlights Did you find out the answer? I want to know because mine is doing the same thing. Thanks! Along with the blinking you should hear clicking, the clicking is a faulty daylight running light relay. The DRL Relay is the located in the fuse box. I installed HIDs in my 04 cavy and when the daytime runners are used they do not supply enough power to the Catalyst. so i have to turn them on manually to get them to stop blinking. (daytime dash light also blinks) its kinda cool when u accidentally pull someone over with flickering headlights lol. i just wanted to throw my personal experience curve ball.

I realize that this is going to sound pretty dumb BUT....... Take the turn signal apart, totally, and wire brush all the connections very well. It sounds like you are getting a feed back through the ground. Do the same with the headlights. Put a little dielectric grease on the bulbs before putting them back into the sockets.

Yes! Pilots are very careful about their night vision, and you -will- upset them if you put your headlights in their eyes. This is not to say that you should turn all your lights off though.
