The interior lights
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 1 year ago

The interior lights will come on when you open the door. Do they stay on for longer than 30 seconds after all doors are closed? How many miles are on the car?

If you press the start button two times without stepping on the brake pedal, does the ignition come on?
