Unfortunately, there's no in-between. You have to either continue on with how you've been doing it, or do like you said and leave it in Auto with something covering the sensor.Hello. I have a question regarding my headlights. Please be kind and read all the way through before responding, thank you! I prefer to have my headlights ON whenever I'm operating my vehicle. However, I always forget to turn them on, therefore, I leave the headlight selector in the ON position at all times.
What I'm finding is when I turn my vehicle off, exit, and lock the door the headlights stay on for like 10 minutes before shutting off. My previous vehicle was a 2016 Ford Focus Hatchback SE and when I followed this process the lights would shut off in a minute or so. Is there a setting I can change so I can leave the lights in the ON position but they'll shut off sooner when I kill the ignition, exit, and lock? I searched through the menu but I didn't see anything, however, is it possible (if one exists) I just missed it?
I considered leaving the selector in the "AUTO" position and covering the sensor so they'd stay on during operation and shut off more quickly - but that dims the display screen. I don't want that either. 😩
Not that I am questioning your motives, but if you leave the headlight switch in auto, it will turn on the Daytime Running Lights. Are the DRLs an acceptable compromise to simply turning your halogen headlights on all the time?
