    Gotta put the e-brake on before you start it for the lights to stay off

    which lights are we talking about here? Are we not just talking about the normal functions of the daytime running lights?

    i always thought the headlights stayed on no matter what with the 01-02 camaro's....but with the ebrake thing, you just pull it up 1 click, and the lights should be off. dont release the ebrake that 1 click to keep them off...i just know from personal experience... my 99 has half ass day time running lights, which is just the front turn signal lights in the bumper...but i have seen newer camaros have both headlights and the parking lights on, with their normal daytime running lights

    Only half assed read your reply....sorry, my bad

    Nope....according to the 2002 Camaro owners manual they come on automatically when it's dark. They do not run continuously unless you have the switch on.
