Q: Q: How do I set my headlights to go on automatically?

asked by on

Live in Canada. Have a honda odyssaey 2007 from the US. Want to make the car to turn on lights automatically on start, and shut down when car is turned off... like cars sold in Canada do. Thank you for your help.

My car has 80000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

After looking at all the models wiring diagrams made in the USA they all have daytime running lights on them. If you want the main headlights on all the time then you would need to turn them on each time or have a mechanic in Canada wire the system to do what you need.
