Leaving headlights on AUTO?

I read somewhere that some goat owners were having batteries go dead if headlights were left on AUTO mode.

I just tried on my 05 GTO. Everything turned off.

Does anyone still has problems with AUTO feature? Do you recommend turning them off/on manually instead of using AUTO Feature. if so, why?

thanks a bunch

Yup, I've never seen a car PERIOD that had a problem like that. Not my car, my dad's truck, my mom's BMW, or any of my friend's cars/trucks with auto headlights.

My goat and my Sierra are both set to auto - no problems. In fact I hate it now when I get in cars that don't have auto lights. I always forget to turn em on!

I have an early builld (NOV 03) car that had the dead battery in auto problem.

But I like to have control over my own car anyway so I just went ahead and pulled the DRL relay and maunally turn the lights on when I want them to come on.
