How do I turn the dome lamps off?

The dome lamps are on the ceiling of your vehicle, and help illuminate the cabin of your car. If you would like to keep the dome lamps from turning on, simply press the dome lamp override button on the dome lamp control board, which is located on the headliner. The dome lamp override button is a symbol of a sun with a line through it. When the lamps are in this mode, they will not turn on, even when a door is opened.
