Default Dome Lights

Ok, I'm out of the chevy and into the 2011 Ram 1500 Big Horn starting on my thrid week. With the chevy when I hit the door opener the dome lights came on. When I turned off the truck the dome lights came on. In the Ram, the only way I get the dome lights to turn on is to push on them. Then push them off. I've been through the menus and can't find anyway to have them come on when I turn off the truck, or open the doors. Is this the way they are supposed to be? Any way to fix it so they come on when I hit the unlock or turn off the truck?

If you have remote keyless entry which I suspect is standard on that Big Horn model, you should have the illuminated entry package.

Quote:
ILLUMINATED ENTRY — IF EQUIPPED
The courtesy lights will turn on when you use the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter or open the doors. This feature is only available if you have Remote Keyless Entry. The lights will fade to off after approximately 30 seconds, or they will immediately fade to off once the ignition switch is turned to ON/RUN.
Note:
• The front courtesy overhead console and door courtesy lights do not turn off if the dimmer control is in the interior lights ON position (extreme right position).
• The illuminated entry system will not operate if the dimmer control is in the extreme left position.
Interior Lights
Courtesy and dome lights are turned on when the front doors are opened, when the dimmer control (rotating wheel on the bottom of the switch) is rotated to the far right detent position, or if equipped, when the UNLOCK button is pressed on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter. When a door is open and the interior lights are on, rotating the dimmer control all the way left, to the OFF detent, will cause all the interior lights to go out. This is also known as the Partymode because it allows the doors to stay open for extended periods of time without discharging the vehicle’s battery. The brightness of the instrument panel lighting can be regulated by rotating the dimmer control right (brighter) or left (dimmer). When the headlights are on you can supplement the brightness of the odometer, trip odometer, radio and overhead console by rotating the control to the right until you hear a click. This feature is termed the “Parade” mode and is useful when headlights are required during the day.

Sweet! That was it, the dimmer switch was in the far left position. I turned it and they came on. Excellent. Thank you so much.
