Hi, I have a viper remote start and aftermarket headlights. When i remote start the car without entering the car or turning off remote start, these lights stay on forever and kill my battery until i open and close a door.

The car has a feature where the lights will stay on after parking the car to light your way. I suspect it's waiting for the door to open to start the timing. But that feature can be disabled.

Usually it's through the options in the radio. Check the Owner's manual under "Instruments and Controls" > "Vehicle Personalization". The feature I'm thinking of is called "Exit Lighting".

Hi, i set the exit lighting to off and it still stays on. It's just the light bar that stays on until i open a door


i got it installed at cartoys. installer said he wired the led drl bar to ignition


so even if i set lights to off that light bar will always be on if the car is on, but if i remote start and never enter the car or cancel the remote start the led drl bar stays on until it detects door opening x.x

I'd go back to cartoys. I'm not sure where exactly he connected things. The Cruze is a highly computerized car and doesn't work like the older cars. It can have a lot of surprises when trying to do add-ons.

Good luck with Viper.
Add on goodies suck and are unreliable.
I had similar issues where I wanted them to hook up the alarm to specific lights to flash outside the car - he did, but when I honked the horn my reverse lights and interior would light up!
Then you ask Viper a question, ANY simple question and they refer you to a licensed installer.

Hope you found your anwer.
