I have a question that may seem stupid but i really don't know much about cars :nervous s .. when i first got my car the salesman who showed me the car's features told me about the automatic headlamps but also told me not to keep the switch on the auto all the time since it will drain my battery.. is it true?!! :knockout:

Nope. It won't do a darn thing to your battery.

There are no stupid questions... only the occasional stupid answer.

But not on this forum. :lol:

Coffee almost shot through my nose reading this. OMG, do they HAVE to send dealers through stupid school in order to sell cars? That's almost like saying the spinning of the wheels during driving causes wear and tear on you dash panel. <Now where did I put my smackin' stick>

Stupid is as stupid does and the salesman was doing stupid way too much...needs to check into rehab and get over his addiction. Glad you're comfortable enough to ask the Q's here cuz there is a lot of knowledge here.

BTW, welcome!

Problem is, dealers have cars sit on the lot for extended periods of time and features that would not cause a problem with regular use, could cause a problem we just sitting around. I can't imagine the auto headlights draining power with the key off, but an alarm, of course, does. So, some dealers will pull the alarm fuse to keep the batteries from going dead. Kind of ironic, aint it.
Anyway, this guy was probably a bit confused about what does, and doesn't use power with the car turned off. Plus, he was thinking of a car on a lot, not in a garage.
