Headlights disobey me

Hey guys over the past couple months I've noticed that when I am driving with my lights on and reach my destination and shut them off they sometimes stay on but the interior turns off. The headlights remain on sometimes for a few seconds before turning off while other times they remain on until I turn them back on and then off once again. It has worsened in the last couple of days. Any ideas whats goin on here?

Re: Headlights disobey me

they are supposed to do that. shut them off before you remove the key and they will stay off. you can also change the time setting in your evic

Re: Headlights disobey me

they stay on for either 15, 30, 45, 60, or 90 seconds i think. just check your evic setting, you can also turn it off again or set them to turn on when you unlock the jeep.

Re: Headlights disobey me

Okay you were right it was a 30 second delay lol but i hadnt touched those settings in ages but that doesnt explain the mysterious 5 second delay that sometimes occurs. Hmm.

Re: Headlights disobey me

it's a security feature, say you get home and its dark, you get out to walk to the house, you have some light for a few seconds. I personally like it
