Re: Beam stay on

yes michel the headlights will come on whenever you turn on the key it is a daytime running light to help in an attemp to cut back on accidents.
if you dont like the lights coming on when you start to turn the key put the emergency brake on until after you start the vehicle or right after you park the vehicle as this will disable the lights until the brakes are released.
a few more details for you are that only the headlights will be on so when it starts to get dark you still have to turn on the headlight switch as your rear lights dont come on until switched on.
next i suggest you remove the emergency brake/parking brake before driving as this will improve fuel milage drastically. he he

i would rather push my Ford than drive your Chevy !
