Curious if there is a way that I can turn off interior lights on cue if a door is left open. My problem is that the interior lights will stay on for 20 minutes if any door is left open, after which they will auto-shut off. Manual does not state any clear way around this default operation.

For example, I went to a Drive-In movie a few weeks back, and left the back hatch open, and the interior lights would not turn off immediately unless I shut the tailgate. I did turn off the cargo lamp and the middle lamp, but the front map lights do not turn off until 20 minutes had expired. There is no switch in the driver console area as there are in many cars, which is very inconvenient.

I was on vacation, thanks for the quick response!! What are the chances I can get a hold of an OEM dimmer switch from an 2008 model so I can have that functionality AS IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN...??
