The maps lights do NOT turn on when a door is opened. The map lights do turn on when they are pressed, so they do work. The Dome light comes on when a door is opened.

On page 274 of the owners manual (Forester Limited 2019), automatic illumination is discussed.
"When the door interlock switch is in the "DOOR" position, the map lights illuminate automatically in the following cases: ...."

Where is the "door interlock switch"?

We have the keyless access fob.

Worked. Problem SOLVED.
In my car the switch is just above the right map light. Also the glare of the light "hides" the switch when on. I suspect that we accidentally pushed the switch into the off position at one time and never realized it till now. The days are short now that it is winter, so it became obvious.:sneaky: Thanks for the quick response.
