Gauge lights/Automatically came on

The gauges on my 2014 Compass light up when I open the door, the light is always on. Is there a way to set them so they only came on when you put the key in or start it?

You'd have to check with the dealer. Many light related responses are programmed in the TIPM and not user accessible for changes. Such as headlights coming on if opening a door and unlocking the vehicle. I hate that since it drains the battery. I had it changed twice but every time the TIPM is changed it goes back to defaults. Short of paying for programming again I have to live with it now.
