i recently got a 2015 SE and when the courtesy light come on, like after turning off the engine or opening a door, all of the interior are lit. I noticed on my friends 2014, the dome lights are different and there are options. I cant seem to find out how to turn it off. Any ideas?
On my '13 there's a button with a window icon that if pressed makes is so no lights come of in this situation. On a '14 Focus I looked at the button is in the center of the headliner, where most cars have a dome light, it had the said button and light

Ok, now on to what you guys are discussing. This information can be found in the 2015 Escape Owner’s Manual. Take a peek at page 61, it states the following:
The interior lamps and select exterior lamps will illuminate when you unlock the doors with the remote entry system.
The illuminated entry system will turn off the lights if:
• you start your vehicle,
• you press the remote control lock
• after 25 seconds of illumination.
The lights will not turn off if:
• you turn them on with the lamp control,
• any door is open.
The interior lamps and select exterior lamps will illuminate when all doors are closed and you switch the ignition off.
The lamps will turn off if all the doors remain closed and:
• 25 seconds elapse, or
• you lock your vehicle from the outside.
If you leave the courtesy lamps or dome lamps on and switch the ignition off, the battery saver shuts them off after sometime.

, find your vehicle, input the model year, and type in the page number I provided above.
Let me know if you need anything else, and have a great weekend!
