It's timing is Dealer programmable unless you have the EVIC dash. Most don't but there are many parameter to programing them. As mine now since the TIPM replacement. Lock the car, they're off but if you open the back door or unlock and go in the lights go on and then time out after a while.

There are various situation but user changes to this is minimal. You can check the manual for but a few changes to them.

That and not being able to turn the fog lights on without the headlight switch on is also dumb IMO. they should have a independent switch so I can run them with the DRL which are always on.

Some of the designs must clearly be engineered by someone out of school and never owned a vehicle.
