Is there a way to turn off the light inside the Model Y trunk lift gate / hatch while the hatch is open?

I’d like the option to leave the hatch open without this light activated.

I would very much like to be able to do this, too. It seems like it would be possible to replace the assembly with a light with an integrated push button, very much like the way the lights above the front seats work. Aftermarket opportunity!

I have left the frunk open and after a period of time I thought I saw that the the frunk bin LED light switches to a dimmer setting. Perhaps the hatch light also dims after a time.

We went to the drive-in last night and I couldn’t find a way to turn this off. I found a leftover piece of wrap from doing my center console and ended up putting it over the light. It was our first time going to the drive-in, but we’d like to do it again. Is there something ‘classier’ I can do? All this tech and I need to pull out duct tape to cover a light that I can’t turn off… 🙄

Do you mean the light in the hatch or the center console screen?

Surround the light with the hook (hard) part of Velcro tape and make a flap from the loop (soft). You can then cover or peel back or remove it whenever. They sell wide rolls in black too so it'll blend in.
