I tried searching but couldn't find anyone else posting this issue. When I'm driving in broad daylight, if I turn on the intermittent wipers my lights will turn on. Then when I turn off the wipers, the lights immediately turn off as well.

I've tested this over the span of a few days and it's happening regularly. Any ideas? (other than gremlins?:))

Theres a setting in the instrument cluster that can enable/disable that feature

Or maybe it’s in the radio, I forget which one but it can be disabled.

Many states require headlights on when using wipers.

This - falls under the "feature" category and not the "bug" category.

I just checked mine. Go to settings on the stereo, select “headlights with wipers” and uncheck to box.
Mine is a Canadian model and not sure if the US models are different.

Thanks for the quick responses! The thought that this was a feature not a bug didn't even cross my mind. Thanks for clearing this up!
