ha ... My only question now is, after i turn my car off the lights stay on, which is nice. But is there anyway to change the amount of time they stay on. Right now it'* a minute, and I think 30 seconds would be sufficent. any ideas?

Turn the ****. That'* a time delay adjustment for off. A little goes a long way.

It'* adjustable anywhere from about 5-10 seconds to 3-4 minutes.

It'* fun to get campus security to call you on it, let alone your friends

I get this practically every day at work. I usually just say "Can you give me a jump start after work?" After trying to hide my laugh while looking at the look on their face I tell them they turn off automatically. Every time someone new starts they tell me my lights are on and everyone at the morning meeting laughs and pretty much all together they say "Can you give him a jump after work?"
This has quite a few laughs for me and my co-workers -it'* embarrassing for all of them one time.

I finally got the timing down to about 15 seconds. 2 nights ago when I got to my girl friend'* house, i got out of the car and went into her house. She looked at me and said "you forgot to turn off your lights, you should prolly go turn them off" And I said, "my lights? I didn't leave them on, I swear." By this time I was in the family room watching tv, and she said, "no seriously, they are on" So I got up, and by this time the lights were off, and I looked at my car and looked at her and said "honey, drugs are bad for you, mm'kay" The timing for the lights was perfect, and I found it hilarious. To this day, she still swears I left my lights on that night
