Can the remote be programmed to turn on the interior lights when unlocking the car? Mine is not functioning. They operate normally when I open the doors, but when it is dark and I can use some illumination, they do not come on when unlocking.

Any thoughts?

On my car - older than yours - the interior lights turn on automatically.

Have you tried fiddling with the switch position? Nothing in the manual?

On my 1997, I move the left three position interior light switch to the left. Then the interior lights come on when i open the door.

Yes, switch is in left position, and lights do come on when opening doors. Problem is when I unlock the car in the dark and lights do not come on until I open door. manual has no information other than they should come on when unlocking.mI guess I will have it checked out, and see if remote needs to be re- programmed(?)

thanks

FYI ~

OK, If I lock the car then unlock it, the interior lights illuminate. If it is unlocked and I use the unlock button on the remote it does not. I can live with that.

Thanks

So all you need to do in that case is just double click the remote
