Hi, My name is Jay

Have you tried to turn off the auto headlight delay to see if lights go out?

Is it the regular lights or the daytime running lights that are staying on? The daytime running lights will be dimmer than regular headlights. Also were you able to get a jump start and get the engine to start and stay running?
