Stupid Question about shutting off headlights

OK, go easy on me.. I did look throughout my owners manual and can't seem to find the answer. My car is a 2010 2SS with RS package FWIW.

I have the headlights on automatic mode, and when I turn off the car and remove the keys, the headlights stay on for several minutes before shutting themselves off. I realize this is supposed to be this way, but is there a way I can adjust the timer on these so they don't stay on so long, or so the headlights shut off as soon as i remove the key? I'm sure there is, I just can't seem to figure out how... Help a new Camaro owner out!

Turn the light switch to the left once in Park = Lights Off

Mine stay on for about 30 seconds after I get out...you can adjust the settings on the radio on where it says config I'm pretty sure.

Check your manual. There are a bunch of settings you can adjust through the stereo and I believe how long the lights stay on is one of them.

You can adjust the time the ligths stay on in the vehicle configurations settings. They are on the radio panel, and you can't adjust everything while moving, so do it in your driveway. Hit the Config button and then use the round right radio button to scroll through the menu and select the item(s) you want to chaneg.

Ok, after I posted I noticed you did check your manual! In the 2011 manual the configuration starts on 5-42 and the lights can be set to off, 30, 60, or 120 seconds.

Second Option, You Only have to do this one ONCE.
1: CONFIG on your Radio.
2: Scroll to Lighting Push MENU/SELECT
The following should be listed:
Exit Lighting
Vehicle Locator Lights

For NO LIGHTS when Locking and Unlocking.
1: CONFIG on your Radio.
2: Scroll to Remote Lock/Unlock Push MENU/SELECT


Turn Off all Options under each (dealing with Lights) and Your Camaro's Outside Lights will remain off after removing the Key, Unlocking, Locking and Popping the Trunk.

NO MORE ALERTING EVERYONE IN THE PARKING LOT your about to get in your Camaro.

Thank you everyone... Never thought to try going through the radio to adjust the headlight settings. That was easy!
