Sweet! I am going to try this tomorrow.I was messing around with the dome lights today. You might want to try holding the dome light button so the lights go off, and then they should flash once after held for a few seconds. This seemed to do the trick for me, and the dome lights no longer come on.
The map lights dont work after this, you need to press the dome light button again to make them function normally. But holding it down does keep the domes off (hopefully) permanently.
I perused what I figured were the logical locations in the manual for this info, but I couldn't find it.Why don't you guys check the owners manual....? Something like this would certainly be in there.
I noticed that right away when I got the car -- probably the first quirk I noticed on the car when I got it. I think that the dome lights are positioned too far behind the seats to be very effective for any kind of reading light function...but I haven't needed to use them that way yet so I'm not really complaining about it, its just something I noticed. I thought they were positioned that far back on mine only because maybe getting the sunroof option caused the lights to be pushed back a bit...sounds like my assumption was incorrect and that it is on all of the models/packages.Anyone else have a complaint about the dome lights? I find that when I turn them on, they incredibly birght (love the broight LEDs) but, because they are ALL mounted behind me, I am trying to see in a dark shadow.
I'd love to have "map lights" in the overhead swtich panel and may play with some ideas.
The interior lights do, however, light the rest of the car marvelously.
