When you open a door to your vehicle, the interior lights will come on, even if there isn’t a key in the ignition. When you then close the doors, the lights will stay on for a short period of time, before turning themselves off. You can adjust the amount of time that the interior lights stay on after closing the doors: 1. Turn the ignition to On, while making sure the vehicle is completely stopped. 2. Press the Menu button. 3. Use the +/- buttons to highlight Customize Settings, then press Source. 4. Use the +/- buttons to highlight Lighting Setup, then press Source. 5. Use the +/- buttons to highlight Interior Light Dimming Time, then press Source. 6. Use the +/- buttons to choose between 60sec, 30sec, and 15sec, then press Source.
