It stays on until you lock the car...any suggestions how to get it to turn off? This started last week and I have tried everything I can think of but that isn't saying much... biglaugh.gif

Not to overstate the obvious - but did you manage to bump the console switch into the on position?

Cheers,

Mine always stays on until I lock the car, or leave it for a while (a minute or something like that).

Even if you leave a door open, it actually goes off after some period of time (5 minutes?)

Later!

I got a more obvious question. How do you get it to come on without opening the door? I tried the centre button below the radio but nothing.

Im pretty sure mine stays on for a few after closing the door...and fades when you lock it. it comes on when you double lock and turn on the follow home feature.
