Timing for getting into the car

The ceiling lights will come on as follows:

❒ for about 10 seconds when the front doors are unlocked;
❒ for about 3 minutes when one of the side doors is opened;
❒ for about 10 seconds when a door is closed (within the three minutes).

Timing will be stopped when the ignition key is turned to MAR.

Timing for getting out of the car

The ceiling lights will come on as follows when the key is removed from the ignition switch:

❒ for about 10 seconds within two minutes after stopping the engine;
❒ for about 3 minutes when one of the side doors is opened;
❒ for about 7 minutes when a door is closed (within the three minutes).

The timeout will automatically end when the doors are locked.
