I wish there were a way to have the headlights shut off when the engine shuts off. Currently they only shut off when the front door is shut. There are lots of times when I turn off the engine and remain in the car for a while, and I would the headlights to shut off too.

For ^this reason and also that I have always found it disconcerting to walk away from the car with the lights still on, I just do it the old fashioned way. Turn the lights on manually when I need them, turn them off when I am done.

My problem is that setting is only for when they come on and off, I want a sensitivity setting for when they low and high beam the on coming traffic. To my knowledge there is no setting for that.

The time that headlights are on can be changed in the settings shown above "Headlight Auto Off timer" section

If you roll the light switch to the "off" position (which it then rebounds/springs back to auto) the lights turn off immediately when stopped/parked. I wish this switch had an actual "off" position it would stay in, but it seems we're too stupid to remember to turn off/on our own lights...based on what I see out there day to day there might be some truth in this.

Interesting comment. My lights turn off and stay off until I turn them back on or to auto. No ”rebound”. Perhaps yours is a Canada feature?

My switch will not stay in the off position it is spring-loaded and goes immediately back to the on position. Perhaps it is due to the daytime running lights. I'll have to research more.

Mine has DRL too and they do stay on when PP is on. I just happened to be working on the map update in my garage and had the headlights off. Switch stayed in off position until I put it back into auto. Interesting.
