HID lights flash with smart key

When I open the door, locked or unlocked, with the smart key in my pocket the HID lights turns on for a few seconds. Is there anyway to stop them from coming on? Just seems like extra wear and tear on the lamps.

Re: HID lights flash with smart key

I havent tried, but if you look under the EVIC, SYSTEM SETUP I remember seeing something about entry/ headlamp delay? Possibly you can set it at 0/off.

Thanks. I did try that and it stopped the lamps from flashing when locking the door but they still flash when opening. I'll keep looking.

Re: HID lights flash with smart key

I've never noted that with mine and that doesn't sound right. Park lights flash with lock/unlock but nothing should happen if the vehicle is unlocked and a door is opened. I would have it checked.

My HIDs flash when using the keyless entry too. Thought it was normal.

^^ Me too. Doesn't seem abnormal.

Re: HID lights flash with smart key

Look in the EVIC ; illuminated approach. You can turn it off.

Re: HID lights flash with smart key

Why would Chrysler want your headlights to flash with locking/unlocking? I hope it's not the default.
Park lights flashing and/or horn chirp is the general norm.

Re: HID lights flash with smart key

I've been through all the settings in the Evic. IA switched to off does just that. No headlamps operation period. Granted, the illuminated approach powers on the lamps (hid) when I have it activated, but I have yet to be able to produce a flash upon entry. Only entry flash I can reproduce is the parking lamps.

Sorry, it's not a flash they stay lit for 3-4 seconds. I'll double check the IA setting tonight and report back.

Turning the IA off solved the issue. Thanks.

They don't flash they turn on for the time you set in the options. Many cars do this. Pathway lighting, coming home, whatever.
