Ambient Lighting?

Post by Linners » Sun Aug 26, 2018 10:48 pm

I’ve noticed that the ambient lighting on the door panels of my F Pace Prestige have stopped working and does not come on with all other night time driving lights. It used to work but has stopped for some reason. I have checked the manual which is no help apart from advising you to switch off the stealth function, which i’ve done. It mentions the ‘extra features ‘ function on the screen management system but the model I have doesn’t have an option to change ambient lighting?
Slightly confused that the door lights worked when I took delivery in March 18 but for some reason have just stopped working. Can anybody help? Anybody also had this issue?
Thank in advance

Is any of the ambient lighting working e.g. on the centre console?

Is it on all the doors or just one?

From what your saying it reads that they have all stopped.

I would say your need to contact your dealer and ask them to take a look for you.

I do not have Ambient lighting on mine.
I have a pop out dimmer control situated next to the remote boot switch, this dimes the dashboard and the door lighting.
Perhaps ambient is only controlled via the touch screen.

Yes it will, but not Configurable Ambient Lighting, just the plain old blue unless you have specced in the Configurable option that allows you to change colours etc.

It can look a bit odd because of this I think although you do get lighting in additional areas such as around gear selector. Examples from mine. Garish colour selection by offspring...but you can set all to matching blue apart from footwell/boot lights etc which are boring yellow white :roll:

Sorry not clear - the configurable lighting excludes the blue around the buttons below screen. For some reason that cannot be changed so it can clash a bit depending on colour choice
