Question Question about the headlights?

Hey guys,

Hope everyone is having a nice day! Just a quick question. I have to constantly remind myself to turn the lights off when I leave the car because it does not have a warning sound if you leave the lights on and leave the car.

If I do happen to leave the car without turning the lights off, will they automatically turn off? I don't want the battery to die one day if I forget to turn off the headlights.

Thanks!

Yes it turns off automatically, hence why there's no warning sound to turn it off. I haven't timed it but I would say it stays on for 30 seconds most likely.

According to the manual, the lights will go out when you open the front door or after 30 sec.

Yup. At night, I keep them on. When I turn the engine off and get out of the car, they stay lit 30 or so seconds. When I get back to my car and push the door handle button (or key fob) the lights come back on. If the lights are on when I start the engine, they do a test swivel (GT model with adaptive LED lights) which is pretty cool. Also, if you turn them off, there is a "follow me home" function where you can pull back on the light stalk (like flashing your brights) and they will illuminate for the same amount of time. Neat features!

Without reading the manual you never know all the weird config options available to you.
