Default Lights under side mirrors

Just bought my 09' and can't figure out how to activate the factory lights that are directly below the side mirrors. It would be nice to have for when i'm getting into my truck.

p.s. one more thing. Anybody know where the microphone for the bluetooth is located? I tried pairing up my phone and could not find a microphone. I'm beginning to think the old owner got Dodge to put it in aftermarket or something.

Thanks in advance,

Your truck probably doesn't have bluetooth. Just because the buttons are on the radio does not mean it has bluetooth.

I think your side lights should come on when you unlock your doors with the fob, or when you open a door to get in or out.

Not sure, but these lights could be problemactic on our 09's as only one of the lights actually works on my truck.

The lights come on automatically when you unlock the doors and when you exit the truck.

my '09 mirror lights also work as turn signals, as well as the other things mentioned
the microphone is in the rear view mirror, you may have to close your windows to use it while driving

RER radio http://www.chrysler.com/en/owners/quality/rer/
the microphone works to verbally change radio stations, make phone calls & speak hands free, verbally to your Navigation system where you want to go
voice command button is for radio stations, when radio is screen is on
2nd button is for using the phone
nav screen must be on when you push the voice command button to use nav voice commands

i think that is how it works
pick your radio, then look below at users manual download, to see how yours works

you might try looking through the settings in the EVIC.... i think its in there, not 100% certain. they are called puddle lights if they are.

that is if you have the option to change functions in the evic, not all trim levels have that option

If you are able to activate the lights on your mirrors it is in the EVIC under settings and called Illuminated approach. If that is already turned on then you may need to replace the LED's.
