Map Lights to automatically turn on, how?

When I manually turn on all the map lights and lock the car all of the lights turn off as they should.

however when I unlock the car, the map lights do not turn back on, I want all of the lights to turn on when I unlock the car/open the door,
Is there a coding option for this, I search on every forum and Google and can’t find it.

aftermarket LEDs, however i know where you are going with this, when I tried it with regular bulbs it did not make a difference.

When you unlock, your map light never turn on, your dome lights turn on and off and dim. We sell led interior kits and bulbs pm us. If you have any issues.

I'm going for a voltage issue, or a lack thereof as is sometimes the case. **************** is onto something.

I know they don’t turn on, that’s what I’m trying to change. Thanks for your “input”, I already have interior LEDs, if you read the thread instead of just skimming to get the minimum info needed to push your products you would know that…thanks for your “help”

he is not on to anything he just skimmed the thread to push his product.

If the Map lights automatically turn off, it means they are controlled by some module and it’s a simple coding issue, I was hoing someone has figured it out before, but I guess not.
