Disable Headlights

I have searched high and low and can't find out how to turn the headlights off when the ignition is turned off. When I get out of the truck they stay on for a few seconds. The 2004 Powerstroke was bought used and didn't come with a users manual. Up in Canada I had to get the U.S. truck equipped with a daytime running module but the truck did this when I first brought it up also.Thanks

Disable Headlights

My dodge ram did this too, idk if your lights are automatic, but on my ram all I had to do was once the truck was off and the lights stayed on I'd just flip them on for a second and turn them right back off and they'd stay off

is your headlight switch on automatic? Mine does that if I leave it on auto, but if I leave it off, they shut off when the key is turned off. The interior lights and running board lights on mine stay on for 30 seconds, or until I lock the doors, then they go off.

Yes, I keep my headlight switch in "auto". I always have it in that mode because we have to have daytime running lights on newer vehicles up here in Canada. Thanks

On my truck, it is under setup, you start going thru some of the options on there and it should say something like auto on time, off, 10, 20 etc

That's probably how to do it but I don't have a manual.

I understand, all you need to do is push the setup button on the dash and then keep pushing it until you see the auto lamp selection.
