Does anyone know how or if the headlights can be turned off at night, without turning off the car? You can't turn them off with the dial, but maybe there's something else that can be done?

There is no way at all. It's pretty ridiculous. I tried for a long time. People got very mad at me when I drove through christmas light displays when they ask you to turn off your lights as a courtesy....

Yeah, I saw you mentioned that in another thread. I was hoping maybe someone else knew something. That seems...odd to me. If you sit in park long enough, the headlights go off, but the DRL (and tail lights) stay on.

I figured out how to do it. Turn off the car. Turn headlights switch to auto. Turn on car and immediatey switch headlight switch to off position. All exterior lights should stay off while car turns on! Just found out after 20k miles with my Q50. On accident.

What works on the Q50 probably would not work on the QX30, unless it's just a coincidence. The systems are completely different (Infiniti/Nissan designed the Q50 system, but the QX30 system was designed by Mercedes Benz).

I would love to know WHY you would even want to drive around with the headlights off? That is exceptionally dangerous! The risk of someone "forgetting" to turn on their headlights is far outweighed by the system simply turning them on, automatically.

+1. That's literally just asking for trouble.

The question specifies, “while in park”. Although, it would be handy while driving through Christmas light displays; people get nasty about your lights being on. Certainly, there could be some sort of alarm warning while attempting to drive without any lights.

Turn off the car. Engage the parking brake. Make sure your lights are turned to the off position. Turn the car back on the daytime running lights should remain off. The daytime running lights don’t come back on till the parking brake is released.

In qx30 USA with LED lights it doesn't work. I only have the switch AUTO. After pressing the Start Engine button 1x (to switch on the radio), the daytime running lights come on.

Wanting to listen to the radio in the parking lot, I have DRL on all the time.
