Who knows what's going on. I wonder could it have anything to do with opening the hatch? I did open the hatch this morning.

This is crazy that I'm trying to distill down every interaction with this car to make sense of something that doesn't make any sense.
More weirdness here. Last night, went to my car, hit the open button twice - no lights. Opened hatch, no lights. Closed hatch, then went to enter car, no lights. I didn't touch any buttons or anything. Drove home, opened door to get out, no lights. Locked car via fob. Went back out later to go to the Y, pressed button twice, lights came on. They stayed on when I opened the door, faded out when I closed the door.

There doesn't appear to be any consistency in how this works.
