Headlight function

I have a 2001 camaro and the headlights come on automatic when it gets dark. In the winter i will warm up the car before i go to bed by putting on the parking brake, which keeps the headlights from coming on. now this does not work. what do i do?

Likely the switch on the parking brake.

Why would you do that? That sounds like a bad idea for the car.

I’m with Joseph. Cars don’t need to be warm unless they’re running. Go to sleep and start it in the morning.
