    I have had my car only one day but is it normal for the dash gauges not turn turn off even 30 minutes later? Also the lights in the gear shifter are still on.

    Nope! Is it possible you have the interior lights dial all the way up? You may need to roll the dial down, next to the headlight switch to the right. I have hit mine a few times and had to move the dial down.

    If that's the case, I think someone swapped his HC with a Tesla!

    ensure radio is at latest software. one of the revisions is for radio staying awake and draining battery. if radio stays awake, the bus will also stay awake. symptoms of a bus that stays awake include guage fluctuation and shifter illumination.

    moisture on exterior door handle's resistive membrane switch while the FOBIK is in range can also cause the bus to wake up.

    Did you cut the wrong wire on the puddle light install?

    Thanks fnkychkn, when they pdi'd my vehicle yesterday I asked to do the radio update and he said they did. They clearly didn't.

    Went from 14.06 to current and the issue is resolved.

    Thanks again
