I took my mom's SRX(2005) yesterday to the drive in and we couldnt figure out how to keep the battery running and open the back with the light staying off. In my car there is a button that says dome override and you press it and when a door opens the lights dont turn on. Is there anyway to do this in this car?
There has to be, its a Cadillac!

Thanks everyone.

i don't think there is a dome override.
However with the doors open, there is a timeout of the light, probably three minutes if you don't open any more doors. If you leave the rear gate open this is the case. I would try adjusting the slider (that increases and decreases light intensity in the gauge console) during when the lights come on.

Where the heck is there still a drive in? Ah, the memories....

ps. if all esle fails, just take the lens cover off and temporarily remove the bulb.

haha
they are pretty fun and cheap.. 4 bucks for two movies

How can a caddy not have a dome override :(

if all else fails... how hard is it to take off the lens covers or whatever? I also read that the light wont go off if u touch nothing for 10 minutes in the manual..
