Headlights on Alarm activate

Does anyone know how to turn off this annoying "safety" feature? I'm not talking about the lights blinking when the alarm is activated. It's the headlights staying on for like 2 minutes after you get out and all. It's quite annoying to say the least.


Thanks!

Unless yours is different then mine, the head lights only stay on if I shut the Jeep off first, if I turn off the lights before I turn off the Jeep the lights do not stay on.

BTW Unless you have added an alarm system, the word "alarm" is a bit of a stretch for the power convenience group.

I believe that I read in the manual how to do it. Don't have it right now but I remember reading about it. If it wasn't so late I would go grab it and check.

When my Jk was in for a recall notice. I had them change the time from 30 seconds on to 10 seconds. The dealer just accesses the on board computer and programs in what you want. I know that headlight feature was a poor design. Nothing like getting in your locked JK in the middle of the night to light up your neighbors tent for 1/2 a minute.
