That will be the battery more than likely. Take your car to the dealership and have them check to see what could be wrong exactly with your car. Dayrunning lights are NOT supposed to go out until you turn your engine off of the car. They are meant to stay on the car at all times unless you are driving at night. The dayrunning lamp lights are a safety feature of the car. Most insurance companies will ask if you have them as a feature. If you do, then that is a good feature to have, because most older cars do not have that feature. It is a good feature to have so that you can let other cars know you are there.

Also, one other thing to check is that you have the DRL (day lights) turned to OFF position on the car. If they are turned to OFF position, then the lights will turn off when the engine is turned off. If you still see that they are still on, then there is something wrong in the electrical wiring in the car, and that will cost you into the thousands of dollars to get that replaced.
