Chevy Impala: How to Turn Off Headlights Immediately

How to turn off your Headlights Immediately

Impala 2006 – 2012 models

You can change the amount of time your headlights stay on after you leave the car, you can even make the time zero so the headlights turn off immediately! This is found under the “Exit Lighting” setting.

NOTE: Keep the car in Park during the entire procedure, you can’t make these changes while the car is in gear.

First, look to the right of the steering wheel. Here you’ll find four buttons to interact with the display (aka the driver information center). The button images are kinda hard to describe, so I’ve given them special names (see image).

  1. Keep clicking the List until you see “EXIT LIGHTING: PRESS ✔ TO CHANGE”.
  2. Click Checkmark once
  3. Now use List again to cycle through your choices. You can choose from: 30 Seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes, Off or No Change.
  4. When “Off” is displayed, click Checkmark again.
  5. Click Road to return to normal dash display operation!
