is there any way to keep my key fob from turning on my car s interior lights?
Every time I unlock/lock my car doors using the key fob it turns on all the interior lights and everyone can see inside of my car clearly for the few seconds
and it kind of bothers me. I decided on using blue cellophane over the lights casings, but would still like to know if I can do something a little more than that.
My SUV, to be more clear.
Also wanted to add, I dont have anything valuable kept in my car. Just a tote bag full of detailing products. I just like to have some privacy, as car owners do with their trunks. Just a simple question either way.
Just for others that keep adding on: "This will override the illuminated entry feature, unless you use your keyless entry transmitter (if equipped) to unlock the vehicle." It's common sense for anyone to look through their vehicle's manual for some good knowledge.

Keep the cellophane on or go for red cellophane instead, if you desire a darker lighting.

i dunno but there are way too many choices with cars these days,its like programming a vcr from the 80's.and nobody uses half of the options in their cars.keep it simple.

Read your owner's manual. If there is a way, the manual will tell what it is. My guess is, though, the dome light has a large switch on it for you to select how it works. Go look at yours yourself, because I can't.

The fact that you have a key fob has nothing to do with it. There is a switch on your over-head light assembly that you can set so that your interior lights won't come on when you open or unlock the door. Read your owner's instruction manual to learn how to set the switch so that your interior lights will (or will not) turn on.

Read the owner's manual for your mystery car. The lights come on so you can clearly see if anyone is inside your car when you get into it.

READ the owner's manual that came with the car. There's probably a section in there that will tell you how to disable this "feature" if you don't want it.

My car has a setting that determines if the lights come on or not. No idea why you would be concerned that people can see inside your car though.
