Interior Door Panel Lights

Post by Dan_FPace » Wed Sep 16, 2020 6:19 pm

Hi,

New owner of a 2019 R-Sport without the ambient/mood light option.

However, the vehicle has no lights whatsoever on the doors even though there appears to be a strip there. It seems odd nowadays to not have a light there? Am I missing something or is this how it should be? Appreciate they won’t change colour etc but I expected there to be illumination of some kind?

Thanks

I hope you are trying to see ambient light with your headlights switch in ON position.
When I bought I was like stuck and thought my configurable ambient lighting is broken.
I was checking in day with my headlights switch in auto and it was not working.
But when I put the headlights switch just to ON position and headlights were also ON outside ambient lighting worked.
Thanks.

Yep, I’ve tried all combinations of lights. Everything else is on(afaik) but the door strips are not.

Hmm so maybe other members without configurable ambient lighting can assist as far as I know default is blue and it should be in doors as well.
Mine was door strip door handle and door cup bin.

Thanks.

Yeah that’s exactly what the salesman told me as well, I’ll wait and see if anybody else has had the same issue and then I’ll speak to JLR. Cheers for your help mate.

Everything checked again, tried all combinations of lights on auto, on, off, dimmer full on etc and there is nothing there. Should the small compartments on the side of the centre console also illuminate?

Will have to get it back to the dealers over the weekend.

There is one more thing called stealth mode you can have a look maybe that is causing it not to illuminate. You need to check in handbook or online user manual. Can't remember from top of my head where you can find that.

Thanks.

My FP is without configurable ambient lighting, there is only blue light, but it IS also in DOOR panels if headlights are working.
