hEADLIGHTS turning on randomly...
 
It started a few weeks ago and will happen randomly.
I start my jeep this morning. go get gas. Start it back up and drive to work.. when i pull up to work my lights are on... If i turn my brights on the go off. lol if i put the turn signal on they go off and come bak on. If i turn the light control arm they dont do anythig...

Its and 05 wk hemi. with hid's installed with a relay..
Could it be the control arm goin bad?
or you think its gonna be alot of money and i should leave it alone.
Or my hid's have a loose connection?

no, no DRL.
Its just random, i wanna say voodoo, lmao
It happens everytime i fill up at the gas station!
I'm wondering if the headlight control arm, when it twists, the points arent contacting right. but idk why it happens after the gas station ha

its the multi-function switch or stalk for the headlights. a very common issue.

very easy to replace yourself. no airbag removal. just 2-3 screws to reomve the plastic cover and viola-presto!

just be sure to buy the correct part for your jeep as there are a few diff ones.

moparpartsamerica.com is where I buy most of my OEM parts. if you can wait a few days i would try them. they usually have the best prices.
