On my '14, I only have one roller knob. It dims/brightens the panel lights, and when rolled all the way to the dim position, it turns off the dome and door handle lights when the doors/hatch are open.

The knob has always been pretty standard on all cars, but the one thing that annoys me on my D is the map lights always turn on with the dome and courtesy lights... is this normal?

I just think it's unnecessary having the map lights on in addition to the dome.

I just think it's unnecessary having the map lights on in addition to the dome.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the front overhead lights that light with the dome lights are not actually the "Map Lights" per se... If you press the button to light the Driver's or Passenger's "Map Light", you will notice there are different bulbs that light which are directed towards where a Map Light would be useful on demand. The Bulbs that light with the "Dome Lights" are indeed behind the same lens, but less focused as the actual Map Lights are.

It's easy to verify this by using the Dimmer switch to turn on the Dome Lights. Once on, then manually press the Map Lght button on the overhead console, you will notice different bulbs within the lenses turn on independently.

At least that's how my loaded 2011 DD Citadel 5.7L AWD functions.

Probably a bad switch in that specific light.
