I have HID's and hate wasting an ignition when I unlock my car multiple times a day.

I do not have EVIC....

Is there a sequence or can the dealer do this for me?

yeah exactly. the ballasts will only ignite so many times (but well into the thousands I guess...) and I hate using them for just unlocking the damn car.

maybe its the way the unlock sequence is programed then.

Ive read theres way to have them all unlock at one press of the button or dr door, than the rest...

but as of now, its one hit for dr door, and another for the other 3....

The instructions I posted were from section 2, page 23 of the 2006 LX owners manual. It is titled "To Turn Off "Flash Lights On Lock/Unlock".

It should work for you.

I do not have EVIC (as previously stated) or my manual. Why do people keep them when they trade the car in!?

Funny we both seek the same. Ok here is the Low Down. We can't turn them off; (not as of yet) I am still searching. Since we have Hid's the afore mentioned threads do not apply to Hid's only stock lighting. I took my R/T to my local dealership where I am tight with the Service Manager and even the starscan can not turn them off. Simply put they I guess they are controlled via ballast and different relay's. I am trying to find a way as soon as I do I will let you know and others as well.

Awesome, thanks.

Im wondering if major surgery is needed...Honestly, Im willing to take it there...:)

I wonder if this is a BCM thing, and a new lead from the headlight switch itself to the ballast relays would do the trick...

My lights stay on automatic so I dont know, but if you have the light switch turned to off, do they still turn on with unlock?

Also, ive always wondered, Does the auto headlamp function still work once you install HIDs? If not, how do they turn on / off, through the factory light switch or a seperate switch that comes with the kit?

I dont have autolights. My car is base...only has a hemi. :D

I would imagine the auto headlights (with aftermarket hid's) work the same as factory.

Hmmm, couldnt someone wire in a toggle switch to the power supply for the ballasts this way unless you flick the switch to give them juice, they cant ignite?
