Gear Shifter Light Issue

Anyone have an issue with all the lights staying on in the gear shift indicator position. My 2014 TH will sometimes light up every gear position on startup, all gear lights will stay on, and the only way to get them to turn off is to restart vehicle. This have happened several times.

Take it to your dealer ASAP. I had this issue and paid no attention to it. I now am driving a loaner Ram 1500 while the shifter part is on back order. Best to get it checked out than to wait.

I have had it happen once and never again...I thought it was the kiss of death, tranny going to blow up etc...but it's been probably six months and no repeat.

Maybe I should mention it to the dealer as I'm teetering on 36k, don't know if shifter is covered under MaxCare...

I don't have MaxCare but did purchase a lifetime warranty, and my issue was covered.

i owned mine for almost 3 years and right from new would get that every once in a while. replacing shifter will supposedly fix it. i never had mine fixed and from the posts ive read it is the shifter getting confused so all lights light up but everything works normally and wont hurt anything.
