I suspect the car is sensing that one of the 4 door switches or the rear cargo door is "open" (they are not). I have tried open/closing all many times and have checked the 4 door switches to ensure that all connectors are attached and the switches are working (they are) but cannot find any switch for the rear cargo door. At present, we have bypassed the problem by manually turning off the two interior courtesy roof lights.
My interior lights will not turn off when I turn off the engine lock the car and on 2001 Infiniti QX4
