So apparently there's this feature, if you bump your blinker down or up, after you've turned your vehicle off, the according side will illuminate your running lights and that side will stay on until you disengage that side. I was cleaning my interior and accidentally bumped my blinker down and now my left side front and rear running lights will not turn off. It's supposed to illuminate that you're parked somewhere, safety. yay! well, i want them off, there's NOTHING in the manual, I've called Chrysler twice to speak to different people and they can't figure it out, the only reason I know what it actually is, is because of google. I'm hoping someone out there can help me.. It's been 2 days, i don't drive at night, so the only reason I noticed is we were getting ready to go out and i saw that they were on. I mean if Chrysler has never heard of it, how the **** am I supposed to get them off? If i disconnect the battery do I need a code to get everything going again? The car was off when I was cleaning, I bumped the blinker down, then put it back up, and now this feature is engaged. My headlights are not on auto, there's nothing in my settings screen for running lights, just timing and etc... My patience is wearing thin. Please help!!!

That's weird there is a setting in my 16 for running lights. Do you leave your illuminated approach on where after you lock or unlock your car or after it's turned off the headlights stay on for a set amount of time? If all of the settings are off you could try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes or so and see what that does

Have you turned the headlight switch to the "off" position instead of "auto" ?

They are never in auto, there was a burnt out bulb on my bumper Orange light and apparently this was my cars way of letting me know that the dealer, chrysler nor the manual knew nothing about. So frustrating

Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean. What is a bumper orange light ?
When a bulb is out, the dash cluster shows that information on the 200's.

Chrysler, and the owners manual, have all the information you need. That they knew nothing about your problem just doesn't sound right.
To me, the service advisor, or who ever told you that, just dropped you a line of B/S.

Hi jwebbs,

If you would like to PM our page with your VIN I'd be happy to look into this further for you!

There is a reflective Orange covered light on the front bumper of my car and the bulb was burnt out. The panel showed nothing. Had it, there would be no question, we replaced the bulb and the problem was fixed. There was nothing in the manual about this as we poured through it not only ourselves but on the phone with chrysler. I never knew lights would indicate a burnt out light, especially parking lights lol it was very strange.

They very well could have. They just told me to go to a dealer. For a burnt out bulb you'd think there would be more information about that. . Oh well, over and done with

Position lights are a European parking regulation thing. Sprinters have them. The left and right side parking/headlamps circuits can be controlled independently in the TIPM. The TIPM may be configurable.
I didn't know that a lamp outage would activate them.

The parking lamps are controlled by the BCM. The BCM can store fault codes that may help us to understand what is happening here. You may need a capable scan tool to read body fault codes. The codes are not the OBD2 (engine) codes that are relatively easy to get read.

The wiring diagram below shows the underhood IPC (fuse/relay box). It feeds the BCM.
The BCM feeds the high/low beams, turn signals, park lamps, sidemarkers and DRL (if equipped).
The diagrams shows the lt front lamp, but powers the other 3 similarly.
Either an internal issue or the BCM is being commanded to turn on the lights for some reason. A fault code may help explain why.
Rectangle Slope Font Line Parallel



Is it just one side that stays on? Or all 4?
An oil change service and resetting the oil life counter should have nothing to do with the external lighting circuits.
If the BCM loses contact with the headlamp switch, it will turn on the lights by default for safety.

Possible fault codes:
  • B178E-11-HEADLAMP SWITCH INPUT CIRCUIT - SHORT TO GROUND
  • B178E-15-HEADLAMP SWITCH INPUT-CIRCUIT SHORT TO BATTERY OR OPEN
  • B178E-64-HEADLAMP SWITCH INPUT SIGNAL - PLAUSIBILITY FAILURE
  • B17BB-18-LEFT SIDEMARKER/PARK LAMP CONTROL CIRCUIT-UNDER CURRENT
  • B17BB-19-LEFT SIDEMARKER/PARK LAMP CONTROL CIRCUIT-OVERCURRENT
  • B17C0-18-RIGHT SIDEMARKER/PARK LAMP CONTROL CIRCUIT-UNDER CURRENT
  • B17C0-19-RIGHT SIDEMARKER/PARK LAMP CONTROL CIRCUIT-OVERCURRENT
  • U1008-11-LIN 1 BUS - CIRCUIT SHORT TO GROUND
  • U1008-12-LIN 1 BUS - CIRCUIT SHORT TO BATTERY
  • U1008-67-LIN 1 BUS - SIGNAL INCORRECT AFTER EVENT
  • U1009-11-LIN 2 BUS - CIRCUIT SHORT TO GROUND
  • U1009-12-LIN 2 BUS - CIRCUIT SHORT TO BATTERY
  • U1009-67-LIN 2 BUS - SIGNAL INCORRECT AFTER EVENT
  • U1045-11-LIN 3 BUS - CIRCUIT SHORT TO GROUND
  • U1045-12-LIN 3 BUS - CIRCUIT SHORT TO BATTERY
  • U1045-67-LIN 3 BUS - SIGNAL INCORRECT AFTER EVENT
  • U1046-11-LIN 4 BUS - CIRCUIT SHORT TO GROUND
  • U1046-12-LIN 4 BUS - CIRCUIT SHORT TO BATTERY
  • U1046-67-LIN 4 BUS - SIGNAL INCORRECT AFTER EVENT
  • U1106-00-CAN C SIGNAL MISSING
  • U1106-88-CAN C SIGNAL MISSING - BUS OFF
  • U1109-00-LOST COMMUNICATION WITH LIN STEERING WHEEL CONTROLS
  • U110A-00-LOST COMMUNICATION WITH SCM - CAN-C
  • U113B-00-LOST COMMUNICATION WITH SWITCH BANK MODULE
PARK LAMPS



NOTE:​
As part of the exterior lighting fail safe feature, upon ignition ON, all exterior park lamps and the headlamp low beams will illuminate regardless of the left multi-function switch control knob position if the SCM cannot detect an input from the left multi-function switch, or if there is a loss of communication between the left multi-function switch and the IPC or between the IPC and the BCM. Diagnose and repair those problems before attempting to repair the park lamps.​
PARK LAMP DOES NOT EXTINGUISH​
1. Ineffective feed circuit.​
1. Test and repair shorted park lamp feed circuit if required.​
2. Ineffective IPC inputs or outputs.2. Use a diagnostic scan tool and the appropriate diagnostic information for further IPC diagnosis.
3. Ineffective BCM inputs or outputs.​
3. Use a diagnostic scan tool to test the BCM inputs and outputs. Refer to the appropriate diagnostic information.​
