Now there's a useful solution. I've managed to run the fogs and ham gear off a switched power source. But I too have suffered the embarissing click-click start to a lunch hour!

NiteDog I don't know of an existing headlight reminder or time delay for shut down. I know they exit in my wife XJ. Sounds like you have the fix.

The other option is to find the circuit controls from an XJ and adapt them.

yjswampthing Same exact thing happened to me I was actually wondering what could be done about it. Are you thinking an automatic shut off or a buzzer?

Headlight kill switch?

I got buisy today and forgot to kill the headlights when I parked at work. Cost me my lunch hr of hunting/favors to get a jump. I love allot of things about my yj but this "al la 60's the lights stay on when you kill the ignition " !#$% isn't one of them . Before I design a relay circut to shut the lights off with the ignition, is there a aftermarket fix that can be bought? Somebody has to have fixed this already, Yes?
