Okay folks I just picked up MY2001 C4. I have a mystery light and the lower trunk/hood release lights stay on after leaving the vehicle. The courtesy lighting all fades to black afet 30 seconds but these remain on after that until I lock the doors and then they go out.

My question is is there a way to program them off? Or is there something I am missing???

Thanks in advance!!!

From the Owners manual pages 112 - 113...

Orientation light
Light-emitting diodes in the doors and in the interior light improve your orientation inside the vehicle when it is dark.
The light-emitting diodes are switched on when the vehicle is unlocked and switched off again when the vehicle is locked.
Light-emitting diode in the interior light
Changing the brightness of the light-emitting diode:
~ Press switch C with a pointed object (such as a ball-point pen).
The brightness changes.

Loren, my '04 C2 doesn't have the C switch on my dome lens, but it does have a switch on the mirror assembly that produces 2 different settings. I have repeatedly looked for the C in the past. Am I missing something?

Yes, if you have anti-glare rear view mirror then it is button D.

Thank you for the replies. So, the trunk/engine compartment lights will go off in a couple hours on their own. The orientation lights stay on as long as the vehicle is open? You must lock car to turn the orientation lights off? I pressed the little button on the overhead light "D" on my page 95 (MY MANUAL - WKD 996 02101) I usually don't lock my garage cars.
