Hello,

The other day, I arrived home and turned off the car, as I normally do. I went around back to get something from the cargo space and noticed the reverse lights were on. I went back to the cabin to make sure I had put it in park good (which I had) and noticed the gauge area said "Headlamp Delay" or "Headlight Delay." It hasn't done this again since that.

I'd like to set a delay, but imagine I have to take it to the dealer to do this. Any ideas as to why it just randomly did this once in the two years I've owned the car?

Because the british haven't mastered electronics ever, and the car does what it wants.

I've had my radio change station settings on me at random a few times (I only had one set of keys and those settings are controlled by the key fobs of which i only had one) only to revert back to my stations the next time I started the car. I swear I even saw some previous owners name show up on the central display under the speedometer/tach one day with a message like good morning( then the guys name). Has never happened since can't find any mention of being able to do this in any literature. You can do it in Cadillacs as far back as 2000 though.

Ugh, that's what I was afraid of. Same issues must cause my steering wheel tilt motor to work intermittently, and the radio antenna not to work also.

Thanks!

Did you turn your headlights off AFTER turning the vehicle off? This will keep your headlights and backup lights on for several seconds.

Well I inadvertantly figured this out last night when pulling up to a Christmas party. I had been waiting in my non-running car for about 5 minutes, when my father pulled up next to me. I wanted to flash the lights to let him know I was in my car, so I pulled the turn signal stalk toward me. This turned the low-beams and the back-up lights on and they stayed on for a bout a minute. The dash said "Headlight Delay" like it did before. This must be a feature to have headlight delay only when you want it.

Good to know!
