  1. After the dealership guy telling me that it can't be done, I also tried using Forscan and was unsuccessful. Like some of the others in this thread, I am an amateur astronomer and go places where lights are not welcome. I have a 2020 Transit Connect XLT. I have a different style menu as I also have BCMii instead of BdyCM. I looked everywhere for something that sounded like it was related to lighting. I was willing to try all of them. In IPC (Instrument Panel Control Module) I found Welcome Goodbye Backlighting and disabled it. Nope, they still came on with door use. I also found Police Car Dark Mode in the BCMii menu and enabled it. As you guessed it, all external lights still pop on with door or hatch use. I then decided I would look through the AS BUILT numbers looking for the elusive 726-01-08 xxxx xxxx xxxx. I would risk changing whatever value was in the first x field to a 2 as others have had success with it. I found my vehicle altogether lacks the entry. On some good news, the changes I made have reduced the 10-minute duration of the external lighting to about 30 seconds and allows me to adjust the dashboard instrument cluster lighting to a lower level than was previously allowed, up to and including completely off. Not the whole instrument cluster but most of it. My quest to control exterior lighting will continue.

    My New Connect

    Hello all, My name is Joy and I just purchased a 2020 Transit Connect XLT! I had a 2008 Honda Element but wanted more space for a telescope. So far we seem to be getting along well except for locating controls for all these pesky lights. The ones already checked off my list are: Dim the instrument cluster Put the navi-tainment screen in "night mode" Turn the headlight knob from auto to off And I've replaced all the dome lights with dim red lights However, I have been unable to controll the entry/exit curtesy lights, short of pulling the fuse for them. Anyone know how to shut those off?
