For improved visibility and security when you get in and out of the car, the fog lights and the tail lights remain on for a certain period of time:
When you get out of the car, the lights are turned on for approx. 30 seconds after the door is opened. The off-delay time
resumes when the vehicle is locked.
On vehicles with the Sport Chrono Package Plus, the PCM can be used to set the off-delay time. This setting also changes
the lighting period for unlocking the vehicle.

The lights go out if the ignition is switched on or when leaving the Welcome Home lighting.
