They should go off by themselves after a few minutes when you exit the vehicle. If you lock the car they should go off straight away.
If not then you, may have them turned on manually. There are two ways to do that. The switch between them and by pressing the lights themselves. Make sure you dont have then on manually and they should work as expected.
It could take a long time for the 12 volt battery to go flat with the map light left on, because when the LEAFs 12 volt battery drops to a certain level, it automaically gets ' topped up ' by the main, Lithium Ion batteries.
I don't know if this happens with the iMiev or other EVs. But obviously with an FFB, you only have one battery, and no electrical back up, or starting handle . . . anybody remember them ?
