● 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.
