Hi,

Since I picked up the car from the dealer, the dome light doesn't go off when i start the car and drive (the switch is in the middle "default position"), I have to manually turn it off (by pressing the switch on the right) and then i can go back to put it in the middle "default position" and the light stays off the rest of the trip.

Example:

I open the doors, I get in the car and the light comes on (ok, fine) but when I close the door, the light is still on, it does not go off, I start driving and it is still on ... :( :(

I have also tried to keep the light on to see if it went off for 5-10min while I was driving but it does not turn off, I always have to turn it off manually, I also try to lock the car from the inside but nothing ... :(

Has it happened to someone else?

Sorry for my poor English, (google translator XD)

Press the actual light, it functions as a map reading light.

Great! That has been puzzling me for a month now. I must have pressed the light inadvertantly and changed it to map mode. Thanks for the advice. By the way does anyone use maps nowadays?
