Interior lights slow

I posted about this once before but didn't really get a response. Every once in a while when I open the door the interior lights are slow to come on. I might stand there for 4 or 5 seconds before they pop on. Its done it since I got it and its only everyone once in a while. They normally just fade on when I put my hand on the door handle to get in. Does anyone else notice this?

Probably not. People on this forum are pretty good at responding to fellow members if they have something to help.

Try and spray the door locks with WD40 or something equivalent, the door lock latch may be slow to fully un-latch, which activates ON interior light.

Re: Interior lights slow

I posted it earlier and didn't get a response. Drivers and passenger door will do it once in a while. Taking the GC in tomorrow again. I'm planning on adding this to the list.

Happened to mine this morning after switching users with my wife. If you use the unlock on the remote when you are walking up buy the time you get everything seems to have switched and working including the lights
