This cargo light will turn off with the switch but when you shut the door it stays on for some 15-20!minutes when the shut off cuts them off

The only way to diagnose this concern is to access the BCM data via a scan tool to verify that it sees all the doors are closed. Does the door open indication come on with all the doors closed?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
No I am believe it is either a bad switch or the delay switch just do not know where that delay switch is located

Expert:  David Gieswein replied 9 days ago.

According to the wiring schematic, there is only the cargo lamp switch and the BCM. No delay in the circuit. The delay is internal to the BCM. Since you indicated that you can turn the light of with the switch, the problem is the BCM. I recommend putting it on the scan tool capable of looking at the door switch inputs and verifying the are reading closed. However, since you said there is no indication the doors are open when they are all closed, I suspect an internal programming fault in the BCM.

I recommend taking to the dealer and see if they can reprogram the BCM

If they can't, it may need replacing.
