Does anyone know why the driver side LED strip in the headlight is not working? The low & high beams work fine in that headlight, just the LED strip is not working.

I’m going to say it’s not , all strip lights that are led are disposable . Unless somebody had taken a headlight apart and then that becomes a water leak and condensation issue

Thanks, so replacing the whole headlight unit is probably the only way to get the LED strip to work?

Someone on here outlined how they were able to bake the headlight to gain access to the LED circuits and resistors with the caveat that it was a major PITA and not guaranteed to fix the issue. So, to answer your question, yes, replacing the unit is most likely your only option.

Have to replace the whole housing. I assume out of warranty? Gonna be expensive.

I had that happen on my PacHy. They replaced the whole headlight assembly - luckily still under warranty.

My guess is the cost will make you ignore the burnt out strip lol

Can you turn the DRLs off?

Actually, not as bad as I thought, $400, $550 if it has HIDs which I dont think the Touring L does:


You could get a used one off a totalled Pacifica. Here's one for $240:

You should try Craigslist , eBay for lights . Or go to dealer get part number and then google the part number with mopar I front of it and you’ll have a variety of prices , good luck

You could attempt replacing the led module that is accessible from outside off the headlight assembly. Usually around $40-50 but may not fix anything.

Yes the module but the strip itself has light pulsing thru it , hence the term light strip . Now ask yourself where the light omits from aside from the module/relay .

There are two modules. One inside the light - not serviceable without disassembling the headlight. One on the outside. Both diodes transmit light through the acrylic. There is no strip. Do a search. Multiple people have found the outer one with a burned diode. Limiteds have 6 diodes on the outer one. That's why they're brighter and eligible for DRLs.

So swapping out the module could fix the led strip not working? You wouldn’t have a part number for that module.
