Integrated Keyhead Transmitter - the fob built into the key (as opposed to the keyless start fob).

Edit: Checked the manual, fixed the acronym. The TSB had it wrong.

Sounds like the problem a bunch of people here were having. I actually disabled my dome light right when I got my car, should turn it back on and see if this effects me.

Yeah, I vaguely remember the dome light sometimes not coming on when I unlock the car (and I'm in the affected date range). I'm going to go take a look tonight.

I've just checked and confirmed that my car does this. No dome light if I unlock the doors (after the car has been sitting), but it comes on if I lock and then unlock again. I knew something was off with the dome light, but I couldn't get the sequence right. Also, if you open the trunk first, the dome light comes on without problem.

My dealership did this TSB for me yesterday, and it looks like it works as advertised.
