Are they headlights or DRL's? If they are DRL's only the headlights will illuminate, if they are the headlights you will also have taillights and marker lights. DRL's will come on when the engine is running in the daylight hours. Also note that some Jeeps will turn on the headlights when you turn on the wipers. HTH

Then they are most likely setup to do that from the main menu settings you can access from the cluster assembly. Or the auto light sensor has messed up and just turns them on when the key is turned on and running. Hopefully it's not the module itself.

thank you again. i'll go to the main menu and see if i can figure it out. if not, guess it's a trip to the mechanic.
