Dash lights


I noticed that these dash lights stay on after turning off the engine
and removing the key for about 5 min. or so....

Anyone know if this is normal or not??

Yep. Plus the overhead light can be on for a couple of minutes too. Least on my 99 it does.

Yes, both delays are completely normal in a 2000 MY Boxster as well.

ok, great! I am glad it's normal.
Seems a little strange for dash lights though.

Thanks for the replies...

Agreed, enroute. At one point I had inquired about the same issue - although at that point I had not been sufficiently patient to wait for the lower dash lights to go out on their own! Another member told me to wait and sure enough, in about 3 1/2 minutes they went out. No worries!

2001 S does that too.

When you lock the doors with the key all lights go out immediately
