2019 Honda Insight EX
I accidentally discovered that my Insight EX can auto turn off/on the map lights. I left one of the map lights on by accident. Came back later and the map light turned on by itself as I grabbed the door handle. Thought to myself that's strange that my map light came on by itself when it never did this before when I unlocked my door. Decided to test a few different scenarios, noticed the map light turns off when door locks, and turns on when door unlocks. Works with both map lights on at the same time and with walk away auto lock. Now that I know about this I can turn on both map lights, lock the car, and when I come back later both map lights will turn on as I unlock the door. :grin:1. Why can’t the front reading lights be set to turn on when the doors are opened?? Never seen a modern car with only one tiny light for the whole interior. It should be an LED bulb too.
I don't think this was meant as an intentional feature unlike the Touring but more of a safety measure to protect the 12v battery.
