    Late model U-Connect vehicles have a weird quirk. My Wrangler does it and my Challenger does it. If I shut off the car while in a phone call. The interior lights and radio stay on for a while. Not sure if this is what’s happening to you.

    I think I fixed the problem . I disconnected fuse #31 in the engine compartment waited for 30 minutes. reinstalled the fuse entered the car closed the door then turned on the cars engine for a minute, turned off the car and armed my car alarm locking the doors while I sat in the driver side with the door closed. as I waited the steering wheel console lights automatically turned off on their own, like they are supposed to do.

    I did this a few times over and over and for some unknown reason this fixed the problem. I guess pulling fuse #31 reset something in my electrical. I don't know why this was happening in the first place but Hopefully this fixed my problem for the long run.

    Thanks everyone who offered advise and tried to help.

    That happened to me once and I just cycled the start button a few times and it went off. Weird
