Although the map light switches are in the OFF position (manually off), the map lights can be set to illuminate automatically in conjunction with a door opening, etc. by use of the door interlock switch. The door interlock switch has the following two positions.

OFF: The map lights do not illuminate automatically in conjunction with a door opening. But, the lights can be turned on manually by pressing the map light switches.

DOOR: The map lights illuminate automatically in the following cases.

● Any of the doors (other than the rear gate or trunk lid) is opened. The map lights do not illuminate when only the rear gate is opened.

● The doors are unlocked using the remote keyless entry transmitter.

● The ignition switch is turned from the Acc position to the LOCK position. The automatically illuminated map lights remain on for several seconds and then gradually turn off after all doors are closed. While the lights are on, if any of the following operations are performed, the map lights turn off immediately.

● The ignition switch is turned from the LOCK position to the Acc or ON position.

● All doors are locked using the remote keyless entry transmitter.

The setting of the period for which the lights remain on (OFF delay timer) can be changed by a SUBARU dealer. Contact your SUBARU dealer for details.
