    Does the bed light come on when you go near the truck? I'm just curious if anyone knows. I'm a tad bit lazy to go check (since I'm in bed right now). Your input is greatly appreciated by my lazy ass

    When you have the push button start, your interior lights will come on as you approach the vehicle if they key is in your pocket. It is actually kind of handy.

    Mine is set to come on with the door. It does not come on just from approaching the truck though.

    I have mine set to door. This is only when the door opens. I was in and out last night and I actually noticed this and thought to myself “it would be nice if the bed lights did what the interior lights do.”

    Coincidentally I discovered this thread first this this morning lol.

    there isn’t a setting to make them come on when you approach the vehicle, in the same manor the interior lights do.

    The UNLOCK DETECTION switch inside the door lock assembly provides the signal to allow the cargo lamp illumination upon smart key proximity or FOB signal...
    Check with your dealer...could be a region/dealer thing.
