Question Interior Lights Gremlin...interior lights stay on

This has happened twice in 1600 miles of ownership. I start the GC with remote, get in, press start and the interior lights stay on. This has happened inside a parking garage so no rain activating the door handles or anything. I go to drive off and the lights stay on. The light dimming dial had not been touched and is the correct position.

The first time it happened. I turned off the GC, tried restarting, lights stayed on. I got out and locked and started again....it took about three times for the lights to correct themselves and start to dim then off after pressing start.

The second time, this evening, the lights stayed on more persistently and wouldn't turn off no matter if off and locked, running, etc. Finally just had to turn the dim dial all the way down and drive like that. Went to the gas station to fill up. The lights were staying on. I opened in doors, locked doors, opened lift gate, etc. Finally the interior lights turned off.

Has anyone else had this interior light gremlin? (this is the only electronics gremlin I have experienced in the 2014...had a couple in my 2011)

Could it be the map lights that are on. They are controlled by those switches flanking the remote hatch release on the ceiling console.

Nope. Trust me, I checked every light 10 times. It is ALL the interior lights stay on as if the dial was moved to the top click to turn on all interior lights. The dial still can be used to dim all the way down but then the console gauges are solo dim. There is something that isn't allowing the lights to fade and turn off once the start button is pressed.
