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.

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.
