Re: Headlight switch, rubber grips peeling off
I did not know they were intended to be auto. Im familar with the type that you set to auto and leave it, or you can manually select if you desire.
I was raised in a small town (I graduated with 18) where few ever locked a vehicle or house...and on the farm it was rule from the time I could walk to NEVER remove a key. Too hard to keep track of that many keys and you never knew who would need something next...a neighbor maybe. It was not unsual for me to come home and a vehicle be missing. It always showed back up though...just a friend or neighbor used it. In fact, I know several people (and myself) that would get a vehicle and break the key off in the ignition so it could never be removed. I had a 98 chevy that I sold with nearly 200K and I dont think the key had ever been removed from the ignition.(unless my wife took it out). Most of my friends are still that way today. Just hard to break old habits.
I am going to pull the key tomorrow and see what happens with the headlights on. This is the time of year that I tend to leave the lights on. It is dark when I leave home, but daylight when I get to work. (I commute 41 each way). Im not sure what I would do with the bulky key though...maybe leave it on the console? I would be afaid of accidentally locking the key in then.
