Works about 30% of the time and sometimes with the keyfob when locking/unlocking. All other lights respond as expected. Not sure what to do short of visiting the dealer.

Every night when I use the remote key and enter, dash lights come on but no dome lamp. Is this uhhhh normal??...

Hey guys -

If your dome lights aren't working properly, please see your dealer about it as soon as possible (even if you have done so already). If you'd like, please shoot me your VIN, mileage, phone number, and dealer information; I'll send these details to your region's Customer Service Manager for review.

In the meantime, please use this link if you'd like to access the owner's manuals:

Thanks for putting this image in the thread! It's the exact page in the owner's guide.

Oh my gosh! I think you could've also said, "be careful." LOL
