Default puddle lites

The lights on the mirrors ( puddle lights). Mine stay on a very long time if you don't lock the doors. Dealer claims there is a modification they can make to the module with software to shorten that time. I'm not the only complaint that has been heard about the time period.
I also need to get the K36 recall fix done on the rear end. They ordered the parts.

Yes, Mine do the same thing. This only occurs when I open a door without first starting the truck. Like, when it's parked in my driveway and I have to get something from the glove compartment. My solution is lock it. They turn off and I don't worry about it.

on my 2009, I believe the time they remain on is related to the settings you make on the DIC, for length of time you set your lights to stay on under the vehicle entry and exit lighting section....perhaps that will help you make an adjustment

If I keep it locked, the thieves and crooks will never know how nice the interior of our Rams look!

There is a software update for this issue. Just go in and tell them about your complaint and they should update your software

Yeah if you search Puddle Lights you will find it, I dont have the # at work.
Also on mine it didnt matter if the doors were locked or unlocked they just stayed on for a few minutes. Got it fixed the last time I was at the dealer.
