2017 headlights on in off position?

Noticed that my headlights stay on even in the off position at night. During the day everything works like normal, I have to turn them on if I want them on. Had a Viper installed a few weeks ago, but I don't know why this would affect the headlights.

I think your headlights have a timed 'stay on' feature when you shut the vehicle down..
You can set the delay time or turn it off in your radio settings.

If that isn't the issue, then let your dealer fix it.

Learn it, know it, live it.

Even while driving, not in the auto position the headlights will be on even if I have them in the off position. May need to call the dealer though.

If they worked properly before the remote start install, I would look to them first.

They have to normally tie into the switch or somewhere for headlights to turn on when remote started.

I still have not looked into why my lights don't come on on my truck when remotely started until I open a door.

The odd thing is, I am not using my remote start currently. It is like the headlights are in auto no matter where I have the headlight switch positioned.

I could be wrong but this could be a safety feature so you don't drive without headlights. Have you tried covering up the sensor on the dash during the day to see if they come on?

Depending on if they tied in correctly, I could see it causing an issue even when not using the remote start function.

I know on my truck, you can actually turn them off regardless of dark or light out... Kind of why the stalk has an auto, on, off etc...

Work as it is suppose to, still can't turn them off at night. Read in the manual and couldn't come up with anything yet. Talking with Viper to see if it changed something.

Tried the remote start after dark with the headlight switch off and the headlights came on. Thinking it is in the Viper wiring at the moment. ?
