Im very very dissapointed with my civic ex map lights. do you really have to keep pushing the switch everytime you want to turn the lights on? I mean I always need to leave my hands on the switch in order the lights to light up.

You have to tap each map light to turn on then tap them again to turn them off -they stay on without having to holding onto them the whole time. You're either not pushing in all the way or the switch(es) are bad or maybe the bulbs are improperly seated.

:yeahthat: If you have to hold it in order for the light to stay on, something is wrong, take it back to the stealership asap.:sadwavy:

I haven't brought it to the dealer, Im just reading the manual. Im really gettin pissed.

The light switch has two positions, the door and the off. when I push the switch towards me, it lights up but as I remove my hand, it turns off. aargghh

I guess you've never used map lights before...

The switch you are referring to is for setting the lights to turn on when your door is open. What you need to do is push on the actual light. Push to turn on, push again to turn off.

HID Maps?? That would be bright as hell, if your roof didn't set on fire as soon as you turned them on. There are a few good LED threads around though. I used LED for my maps and rear dome, and trunk and license plate.

I can't believe how retarded you're being. Not saying you're retarded but you must really not be thinking this through.

1. Put the switch to door.
2. Unlock your car, open door [lights should be on].
3. Close door [all lights should turn off]
4. Look up and you'll see two map lights. Push them in, and they should turn on.

Try replacing the fuse and/or light bulbs?
