Lights turn on when washing the GC
 
When washing my 2013 jeep the lights will turn on when water hits the driver / passenger door handles. Does anyone know how to disable or stop the lights from turning on without having the key-fob 500 feet away?

Have not tried it but you can try disabling keyless enter n go in the EVIC temporarily while you're washing the car.

I just leave my keys about 10-15 ft away while washing. It is a fairly small area that, if the key is present, will trigger the doors to lock/unlock.

True.. At home it's not a problem I should said washing it at the car wash that's when I would like them to stay off. Everyone's input is helpful keep me thinking ya no.

Also if you are talking about just the headlights and don't mind the flashing blinkers then turning the headlights to the Off position instead off Auto may stop them from coming on when it unlocks...not sure about that though.

The lights switch position made no difference but turning off keyless entry and go was definitely the answer

I just leave the fob in the vehicle while washing and slide the "real" key out just incase the Jeep gets angry. Less button pressing than going through the EVIC.

You guys are full of good ideas. Certainly easier than shutting down keyless entry and go and then turning it back on. Thanks

Maybe its a 2012 thing, but if you turn the lights from Auto to OFF the lights do not come on when washing the car.
