That's acting up on me too. I haven't heard anybody else talk about it and I thought I was the only one, lol. I don't have a couple seconds delay like you though. I turn the car off, get out, close door, lock the beeyotch, and the lights are still on. It's happened 3 times that I know of.
The first time it happened at dusk when it wasn't that dark out and I didn't catch it. Had to jump the car the next morning, was almost late for work. When the car fired up the lights were still on, even though daylight now. I turned the knob to off, then all the way back to the right to auto and they didn't come back on. The last 2 times I was able to catch it. I'm starting to get in the habit of just dialing the things to the off position. I don't do it all the time, but I'm starting to lose faith in that light sensor on the dash (I think it's on the dash).
To answer your question, I have no idea what's causing it but the next "repair" on my list is to get those gaping holes/seam rips in the tops of my back seats and rear passenger side headrest repaired, then tint the dogchit out of the rear window and a dark but legal tint on the sides to try and keep it from happening again. I still don't know if it's sun damage or heat damage. If it's heat damage, I'm screwed and the tint won't help. It's not cheap leather, just cheap ass stitching. I've heard of this happening to the same guy 3 times, luckily his was all covered under warranty.
