I *am* confusing the two features and thanks for clearing it up. The DRL
feature is my friend but the Automatic Light Control is not.
So, going back to the problem of coming to a stop and wanting to turn my
headlights off *after* the truck has already been started is what I would
like to be able to do. Engaging the parking brake in this situation doesn't
turn the lights off. Is shutting the engine off, engaging the parking brake
and restarting the engine my only alternative with these automatic
Google is your friend. I bought an aftermarket switch that I can choose to
have my automatic headlights on. I NEVER choose the auto mode, except in
the daytime. The switch also controls my DRL's and I like them in the
daytime. For headlights, I use the headlight switch. If you can't find a
thing similar to mine, there are a million pages out there that will tell
you to put a resistor in the sensor wiring.
