When I put the overhead light switch into the neutral or center position on my 2006 Cab, both the door and footwell lights go off as advertised about 2 minutes after shutting the door; however the overhead light by the switch does not. It will go off if the left part of the switch is depressed, but that also shuts off the footwell lights. Any thoughts as to why the overhead light might not be going off when the door and footwell lights do?

Thx, Lyn

How long does it stay on ? Does it go out when you lock the car ? Have you checked the lighting setting on PCM ? Not likely that only the center position of the switch is failing so must be something else. Give us a little more to go on.

I should clarify that both the overhead and the footwell lights stay on all the time when the rocker switch is in the center or right side position. Neither will shut off unless the left side of the rocker switch is selected regardless of the circumstances (ie: engine on or off, doors locked or unlocked). The door lights act normally and go off in about 2 minutes after the doors are closed or when the engine is started. Are there separate limit switches for the overhead and footwell lights? No I haven't checked the lighting setting on PCM as I don't have a clue as to how to do so. I've had the car less than a week and am still discovering what makes it tick. To say the least, it's a bit more complex than my 986 Boxster was.

Thx for your help.
