Hello York and welcome.

When you pull over next to your news stand, shut the engine, take your keys out of ignition and THEN turn the light switch on to activate parking lights. If you do that with your keys still in ignition, taking keys out will cancel your action due to the Kia automatic lights shut down system, designed to protect your battery if you forget to turn the lights off.

My experience is somewhat different. Just turning on the lights after removing the key doesn't do the trick. I do it by turning the lights off and the on after opening the driver door. Due to the mandatory lights, day or night, i tend to leave the light switch on all the time.

Oh btw, Damjanev is right, its not taking the keys out alone that kills the light, its taking keys and opening the door...but, you got it.

Cheers.
