How do I put the dome lamps in door mode?

The dome lamps are on the ceiling of your vehicle, and help illuminate the cabin of your car. When the dome lamps are in door mode, they will turn on automatically when a vehicle door is opened. When all of the vehicle doors are closed again, the dome lamps will turn off. To turn on door mode, press the door button (which is a symbol of a door) on the dome lamp control board, which is located on the headliner.
