You may have a defective headlight switch due to overheating. Pull the switch panel out and look at the connector to the switch, smell it, Des it have a hint of burning plastic, are the metal connectors discolored? If this is the case replace the switch and install a headlight switch repair connector, solder the new connector on do not use crimp connectors!

Yes. Turn your key to the on position and leave it. You will see the display flashing security in the instrument panel. leave the key in the on position for approximately ten minutes till the security light stops flashing. Then try to start it. If it does not start. Immediately turn the key back to the off position and turn it back to the on position and repeat the ten minute process. It may take up to three ten minute cycles to reprogram your key to the antitheft system. Make sure your battery doesnt go dead during the process or it will not work. To make your headlights stay off. press down on the parking brake pedal this will keep your headlights off while the key is on.
I own the same year make and model. The headlights are supposed to stay on for a few minutes if you shut them off after shutting off the engine. This is a safety feature. These are the headlights only. If the lights, side markers and taillights stay on, then the issue is most likely the switch. You will have to pull the switch and disconnect the wiring harness to confirm this. If the lights go out, then the switch is bad.
However, if the lights don't go out, or the headlights never shut off until they drain the battery, you may want to take the car in to get diagnosed. There could be an issue with the body control module or wiring. Most likely, it is the switch as Chrysler uses the cheapest parts for their switches, but I would check it first and not swap parts. All you have to do to check the switch is pull the bezel it sit in out of the dash. The switch is held in with two screws.
