Map Lights auto entry/exit shutoff

is there anyway to shut off the map lights from coming on when you unlock/enter/exit or turn the car off?

here's from the manual:
Perimeter lamps illuminated entry
With the Integrated Keyhead Transmitter system, the following items will illuminate when the Lock control on the transmitter is pressed:
• Headlamps
• Park lamps
• Tail lamps
The lamps will automatically turn off:
• if the ignition switch is turned to the on position,
• the Integrated Keyhead Transmitter lock control is pressed, or
• after 25 seconds of illumination.

Note: On some vehicles, the perimeter lamps illuminated entry feature will not activate in daylight conditions.
Deactivating/activating perimeter lamps illuminated entry
You may enable/disable this feature by having your vehicle serviced by your authorized dealer.
You may also perform the following power door lock sequence to enable/disable the perimeter lamps feature. Note: Before starting, ensure the ignition is in the off position and all vehicle doors are closed. You must complete Steps 1–5 within 30 seconds or the procedure will have to be repeated. If the procedure needs to be repeated, wait a minimum of 30 seconds before beginning again.
1. Place the key in the ignition and turn the ignition to the on position.
2. Press the power door control on the door panel three times.
3. Turn the ignition from the on position to the off position.
4. Press the power door control on the door panel three times.
5. Turn the ignition back to the on position. The horn will chirp one time to confirm programming mode has been entered and is active.
6. Press the power door control twice within five seconds. Note: The horn will chirp once to indicate the perimeter lighting feature has been deactivated. The horn will chirp once and honk once (one short and one long) to indicate the perimeter lighting feature has been activated.
7. Turn the ignition to the off position to exit the procedure.

Note: The horn will chirp once to confirm the procedure is complete.
Illuminated exit
• When all vehicle doors are closed and the key is removed from the ignition, the interior dome lamp will illuminate.
The lights will turn off if all the doors remain closed and
• 25 seconds elapse, or
• the key is inserted in the ignition.

of course, it depends which year you have;
checking the owner's manual will be the best way

otherwise: long story short: no.

Nice to see that the owners manual is checked for these types of questions. Good stuff is contained in those books.

thanks for your help! i really appreciate the effort! unfortunately i think it cannot be turned off. maybe the dealership can do something but there is no info about turning it off in the 15 manual.
