Interior Dome Light won't turn off

After a month of owning the Ghibli I haven't had any problems (besides squealing brakes from time to time) until today. When I turned on the engine today the interior dome lights in the front seat and back seat came on and they won't turn off no matter how many times I press the buttons. The only way they'll turn off is if the engine is off for 15 minutes. Once I start the engine again, the lights come back on and they won't turn off. This is very strange, I made sure to close all the doors 2-3 times and the trunk as well but the interior dome lights still stay on. Did this happen to anyone else? I'm gonna call the dealership tomorrow and hopefully it's a minor issue.

did you check the scroll light control on the dash to the left of your steering wheel?

This happened to me the first day I took delivery. There are 2 scrolling wheels on the left of the steering wheel, the left one in these 2 controls this feature and the brightness of the display. If the wheel is all the way up, all the lights are always on and the display is max brightness. A step down turns the lights off but max brightness remains. Another step down turns the auto brightness feature if enabled in the settings to on. Hope this helps.

These are the scroll wheels that they are referring to.

Not ideally, it dims when the auto headlights come on which can be in relatively bright conditions.

Hi TheMethod,

My name is Howie from MaseratiCares - MNA official online customer service manager.

The interior dome light seems to be in the full upright position. You can scroll this down to turn it back to default setting. This can be found just left of the ignition switch.

If you this matter persist, then I would advise taking this to your nearest authorized Maserati dealer to resolve this for you.

Regards,

Howie - MaseratiCares
