How do you turn off the headlights while a car is running?

My boyfriend and I are going to the drive-in theater later tonight, and the email confirmation reminded us that we have to turn off our headlights while there. It’s good they emailed us, because I have no idea how to turn off the automatic lights on my Honda Accord. How do you turn off headlights while a car is running?

Not being able to turn your automatic lights off while at a drive-in theater could undoubtedly cause some problems, so it’s excellent they emailed you and you’re learning how now.
To turn the automatic lights off on your Honda Accord while the vehicle is running, you should:
  • Park the car.
  • Turn the engine off.
  • Engage the parking brake.
  • Turn the vehicle back on.
And that’s it! Many cars now have automatic lights and daytime lights that are always running if the vehicle is on. They’re great safety features which is why they make disabling the lights so tricky. Fortunately, this method works with many makes and models, so it’s worth recommending if you see anyone struggling with their lights!
