Re: All exterior lights are on when engine is started and...
Is this happening all the time or just at night? The car is equipped with automatic daytime running lights which automatically turns on the full lighting system at dusk and off at dawn or other lowered daylight situations. Do you have something on the dashboard covering the daytime running light sensor? Is the headlight switch turned to the off position?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Find fuel test valve in fuel rail on top of engine. Take cap off valve. Turn key on. Push down valve with screw driver. fuel should squirt out. If not check fuse fuel pressure relay and bad wires. If fuel does come out, remove a spark plug from engine. Connect plug wire to plug. Ground plug against engine. Crank over engine and look for spark.
use the ignition switch master key. turn the ignition switch for ten minutes until LED ignition warning light go off.then turn off ignition switch wait 5 seconds then try to start engine. if this procedure starts your engine have dealership or garage to check out theft security system.
It's probably the lighting control module , but without doing some electrical testing that is just a guess !
Battery positive voltage (B+) is applied at all times to the lamp control module (LCM) through the underhood junction block HDLP MaxiFuse® and CKT 1242 (RED).
When you place the headlamp switch in the HEAD position, the headlamps input to the LCM is grounded. The LCM then applies battery positive voltage (B+) through the underhood junction block HDLOBML fuse and HDLOBMR fuse, which feed the left low beam headlamp and the right low beam headlamp respectively. When you activate the headlamp dimmer switch by pulling on the multifunction lever until the switch clicks, CKT 524 (PPL) is grounded to the LCM. The LCM then removes battery positive voltage (B+) from the low beam headlamps and supplies battery positive voltage (B+) through the underhood junction block HDHIBML fuse and HDHIBMR fuse, which feed the left high beam headlamp and the right high beam headlamp respectively.
Twilight Sentinel Circuit Description
Twilight sentinel determines whether the daytime running lamps (DRL), or the exterior lamps and the low beam headlamps at full intensity should be on based upon the signal of the ambient light sensor. When the ambient light sensor detects daytime, the twilight sentinel turns on the DRL. When the ambient light sensor detects darkness, the twilight sentinel turns on the exterior lamps and the low beam headlamps at full intensity. The twilight sentinel also keeps the lamps on for a delay period of 3 to 180 seconds under the following conditions:
• The vehicle is in PARK.
• The ambient light sensor detects darkness.
• The ignition switch is turned to the OFF position.
You may turn off the twilight sentinel manually. When it is dark and the gear selector is in PARK, pushing the twilight sentinel switch to OFF will turn off the headlamps and exterior lamps. Pushing the twilight sentinel switch to OFF again will turn on the headlamps and the exterior lamps. If the gear selector is not in PARK, pushing the twilight sentinel switch will have no effect.
The F- switch is just an input from the LCM - lamp control module .
Do you know how to test control module inputs an outputs ? Very easy to fry a module if you don't know how to do it .
Also have a full scan of all modules on the vehicle , could have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored . Not for the OBD 2 engine computer . The instrument cluster , BCM , LCM can all set codes too, related to lighting an someother thing's . ECM Inputs and Outputs Diagnosis
You can find free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine ! Under system click on lighting ,then under subsystem click headlamps . Click the search button then the blue link . The first diagram you will see at the top the power supply to the LCM , down a little you will see the headlamp switch , ambient light sensor . Now if you want to start replacing thing's without testing good luck !
TURN THE IGNITION SWITCH TO THE ON POSITION FOR 10 MINUTES WITH ENGINE OFF.UNTIL SECURITY TURNS ITSELF OFF.THEN TURN OFF IGNITION SWITCH WAIT 5 SECONDS.THEN START THE ENGINE.IF SECURITY STILL ON DEALERSHIP HAS TO FIX.
YOU SHOULD RECHECK ALL THE CONNECTORS THEN YOU NEED TO CHECK ALL THE GROUNDS AT THE LEFT SIDE A PILLER FIRST IT APPEARS THAT IT IS LOOKING FOR A GOOD GROUND THE WINDSHIELD MAY HAVE A LEAK AKA CORRODED GROUND
Check all of your fuses then make sure that you are getting 12 volts from the battery. If starter is making a grinding noise, it sounds as if it is not getting enough voltage. If it is and makes a whirring noise, it may be the starter itself. Hope this helps.
From left to right
1. The wrench light is the service interval light.It will illuminate after about 4800 miles or 358 days to remind you your vehicle is due for service.To reset hold the SELECT and UNITS buttons on the trip computer for 5 secs. The light will illuminate then extinguish itself after about 4 secs.
2. Frost warning light. This light illuminates yellow when exterior temps are between 39 to 32 deg. F to warn you of possible icing on the roads.It will illuminate red if temps drop below 32 Deg.
3. Brake pad warning. Will illuminate when brake pads have worn down to the sensors in the pads.
4. Washer fluid warning.
5. Door Ad-jar
6. Bulb failure. Indicates an exterior bulb is out.This will illuminate until brake pedal is pressed after starting engine unless of course one of the brake lamp bulbs is burnt out.
