there's something called a BCM (body control module) that is responsible for the delay sounds like it's gone wrong....will have to research as this is uncharted waters for me too- gimme a couple-

they are saying that we will have to have your diagnostic codes read...but pluck and replace might be an option...let's see-

they are calling it an LDM on this illustration, there has to be a way of testing this short of replacing it~

There has to be a time delay device of some sort that shuts them off. I don't know if it adjustable or if you have to replace it. Check your relays and see if there is one with a small hole or screw in the cap. That would be the adjustment.
