I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty with manual light switches. I noticed shortly after buying it several years ago that if I turn the car off before switching the headlights off, and then switch them off they don't go off. However, if I switch them back on again and off again, they then turn off.
I thought this was just some electrical issue that I could live with until I recently bought a 2001 Dodge Dakota that does the exact same thing. Obviously both vehicles are Chryslers, so now I am thinking there are two possibilities. This is some odd and unhelpful "feature", or the electrical component that Chrysler used to switch the headlights on and off is prone to fail in this rather interesting way.
Has anyone seen/heard of this before? Is it something I can fix?
