Hey everyone,

My 2016 R/T is about 1.5 years old, and both left DRL halos just went out on the driver's side. Since both went out at the same time, I suspect it's not a bulb issue but maybe a loose wire or fuse? Has anyone come across this before? I'd like to fix it on my own, if that's possible. I called the dealership to see if there was a quick fix, and they said "it would probably take a day in the shop to figure out"...

Thanks in advance for your help!

Don't touch it, because once you do it's your problem. Take it in, that's what warranty is for. I know that's not the answer you want but it is the best advice. It really could be anything and it's likely not a quick fix.

Once you find out why they're not working, let us know, so when I get one of these new Challengers with those halo rings around the headlights, I can make them both not work.

Can you unplug a fuse and disable them both? Anybody know?

Sorry you meant the white halos. They are controlled by a PCB inside the headlight assembly. I also suspect they might be controlled by the BCM through the same PWM signal used by the side markers but I am not 100% sure.

Do your front side markers still work?

Thanks for the advice BlackHemi41. I ended up just bringing it to the dealership, and it was covered under the 36,000 factory warranty. After waiting a few days for a new headlight assembly to be delivered, I returned and it took an hour and a half for the dealership to replace (had to take bumper off etc- another good reason I didn't try messing with it). Turns out the assembly was just "burnt out". The front side markers were still working prior to getting fixed.

Its a good thing it was covered under warranty, apparently a replacement headlight assembly is in the $800-$900 range each!?

Glad that they got it fixed. One more little $800 reason that I'm glad that I have the Chrysler Lifetime Warranty!
