Why do the interior lights stay on a long time?
For the first time tonight, when I exited the vehicle and locked the doors, the interior lgihts
did not go off in the usual amount of time. They eventually did go off, but when I got int he
vehicle to drive home in the dark, the interior lights stayed on and would not turn off while I
was driving home. I parked and exited the vehcile and the interior lights would not dim or
They are on a timer. Giving you time to exit the vehicle and see what you are going. In theory anyway. You must have touched something that activated the light timer.
I am aware that the interior lgihts stay on for a few seconds giving you a chance to exit the vehicle, but when they stay on several MINUTES - like 5-10 before shutting off - I fear battery drain. If I touched "something" that activated the light timer, tell me what it was and how do I "touch" it again to adjust length.
I have a 1999 grand marquis and this happened today where the interior lights would not go off at all. I sprayed WD40 on all the doors and that fixed it.
