Hello and welcome!

My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
When the vehicle is running and I turn on my headlights all my dash warning lights come on. Then when I turn the key off the truck stays running until I shut the headlights off
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 month ago.

Can I start by getting your VIN?

Thank you for the VIN!

One minute while I pull up your vehicle

Expert:  Amedee replied 1 month ago.

Sorry for the delay!

So your saying the engine will remain running after turning the key off?

It wont turn off until you turn the headlights off?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
That is correct . I can remove the key and it will remain running. It doesn't make much sense but that's what it does
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It operates normally if the headlights are off
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 month ago.

Are there any aftermarket security system, alarm system or remote starter installed on the vehicle?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Factory dodge alarm

I think the only way I could help you is if we spoke on the phone.

Would you be willing to talk on the phone?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I don't want to pay 26 bucks for a phone call without even having an idea of what's wrong
Expert:  Amedee replied 1 month ago.

I can give you lots of ideas..

I will leave this question open.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It's definitely going to take some electrical testing to determine what you have going on. The warning lights coming on when the headlamps are turned on could be a bad central timer module but that shouldn't keep the engine running.

Do you have a scan tool capable of communication with all modules?
