Lights came on while washing the vehicle.

Iíve had my brand new 2018 Compass for about 7 weeks now and so far itís been great. Today while hand washing the vehicle I noticed the headlights and taillights came on. I have them set on auto and the engine was off at the time. Anyone else have this happen? Iím hoping this isnít the start of electrical issues already.

Garage
Did you wash around the front door handles or maybe a hard spray of water around them? That could have caused the doors to unlock and the lights go on for around 20 seconds.

Leave the keys in your house when you wash next time, and it won't do that. . Happens to me all the time.

Hi Bryan,

If you end up going into the dealer for an inspection, we're available via direct message if you need help with that process.
