Instrument Cluster Display shuts off with car

Sun Nov 21, 2021 11:36 am

In my 2016 car, suddenly and sporadically, the main dashboard display and the radio sound itself all immediately shut off when I park and turn off the car. Obviously, these are supposed to remain illuminated and operational until the driver opens the door. I can't seem to recreate the problem deliberately. Usually, when I drive, park, and then turn off the car, all systems remain up as they are intended. But I'd say roughly 5-10% of the time I've driven the car in the last couple of weeks, this instantaneous shut-off has occurred. Ideas?

Does the dome light come on when it happens?

IF so, the driver's side door switch may be intermittent.

I don't believe the dome light comes on, but this is a good thing to pay attention to and follow up on if it happens. Thank you!

Unless you have the dome light turned off. Make sure it's set to "door actuated".
