If you press lock twice or touch indent twice, it should turn them off. If too much work, then use settings to change how long they stay on when you get out.

I have the lights set to turn off when I open the driver's door to exit (initial setup). If you don't know how to do it, your dealer can set it up like that for you.

Are the lights set to "ON" or "AUTO"?

In the 4GS the lights no longer automatically shut off when they are set to "ON" for some inexplicable reason like they did in the old GS300 in your sig...

I know how to use the remote to close the headlight by pressing lock two times. But when I press my lock it don't make any sound but it locks the car and the headlight don't turn off

You mean when you press the remote locking button on the door handle? It doesn't turn the lights off, even if you press it twice. They will go off after the elapsed delay period...

When u press twice ur headlight should turn off. I already know if u press 1 time lock and wait 10 sec ur headlight will turn off. My problem is when I press two times it don't turn off and make the beep sound when I lock my car or press the emergency light when lock. The headlight turned to Auto.

No. If you press the handle twice the headlights will not turn off. Pushing twice only works on the remote.

But it locks all the doors? And the lights do go out after 10 seconds?

Check to be sure the audio for the beeping and make sure that its turned up all the way. There used to be a **** under the drivers side of the dash but I'm not sure nowadays.

Do the doors lock? If they do then do the headlights eventually shut off or do they stay on indefinitely?

I do understand and I'm trying to help you, but I can't help you if you won't answer my questions.

1. When you try and lock the doors, do the doors lock (I understand there is no sound)? (yes or no)
2. Do the headlights eventually turn off or do they stay on indefinitely? (they eventually turn of or they do not)

If the answers to those questions are 1. Yes and 2. They do not its likely a bad door switch...
