    Just picked up my truck on Saturday, and I LOVE it. Went over every part of it, and found one thing that was odd...no indication if I leave the headlights on and shut the ignition off. Am I missing something?

    x2, shut off the key and open the door and the lights will go off. If the truck is off and you turn the lights on, the lights will stay on but there is an indicator if you open the door.

    I leave my headlights on all the time. They turn on with the ingnition and off when the door is opened. I just wish my insurance would give my credit for DTRL. I like ppl seeing me comming before they pull out. When they cut me off they have no excuse and I can lay on the horn.
