turning exterior lights off with key in ACC position

There is probably a really obvious answer to this but I checked the owners manual and didn't see anything that helped. We were at a drive in movie tonight and they use a radio station to stream the sound for the movie. So I put the key in the ACC position so that we could listen to the radio with the car off and turned the auto lights off (since it was dark outside they were already on). I thought that doing that would turn off ALL of the lights...but the red rear lights were still on. We ended up having to keep flicking the key back and forth every ten minutes to turn the radio back on so that we wouldn't disturb the other people with our lights. Is there any way to shut off all exterior lights and use just the radio when the car isn't running??

You should just be able to flick the headlight switch down towards the power symbol, your Driver Information Center will then say Auto Lights off and you should be all good.

I tried turning the auto lights off but that only shut off the headlights. The red rear lights were still on which I think is really weird.

I was wrong. If the auto headlamps feature is ON, the headlamps & taillamps remain ON if you turn the key from RUN to ACC. But if you then turn the key OFF & then to ACC the lamps will remain OFF. At least that how its appears on my car in a quick check.

Have you tried turning off the exterior lights in the DIC menu?
