Headlight question

I took my jeep to the dealer yesterday to have them check out the automatic headlights and now everytime I start the jeep and put it in drive just the headlights come on and then they go off when I put it in park. Did they mess something up or do i have problems going on? Thanks.

Re: Headlight question

you can do some pretty neat stuff with the computers. you can tell it to turn drivers side then passengers or visa versa. all threw making a few changes with a computer. unfortunately you need the dealers computer to change come of the settings cuz my buddys jobs computer cant turn the fogs on with the high beams

Re: Headlight question

After doing some research, I assume that the dealer must have enabled the daytime running lights ,because the headlights come on dim when put into reverse and drive and they go out in park. I was thinking about having them turned on anyway,but I guess I don't have to think about it anymore

Re: Headlight question

Sounds right. The daylight running lights use the high beam headlights, but at half voltage.

Re: Headlight question

Would this be something the dealership could program for free if someone wanted it? I also head that they can program your side rearview mirrors to tilt down then you place the shifter in reverse...

You're right, they activated the DRLs. When I installed my fog lights, I asked them to program the auto headlights too, but they mistook my request to mean the DRLs. I was okay with it until I did the OEM HID converstion. The low voltage of the DRLs wouldn't allow the balast to fully ignitie the HIDs and they would flicker really bad. Then I asked teh same the dealer deactivate the DRLs, and they said they wouldn't because it was considered modification to the vehicle. So I went to a competeing dealer, and the other dealer lost my business from here on out. Too bad, because the first dealer is where I bought the Jeep.
