mac.mogul "MyColor" is on the Mustangs only.

The interior lighting option is named simply "Ambient Lighting" and is not rare by any stretch of the imagination... It might be less common on our style of Focus since the 2nd Gen Focus had it first but some newer cars have it standard depending on which package you buy.

Chances are if your car didn't come with them, you won't be able to install the OEM kit.




This is the location of the harness where the LEDs get power.
Mine is attached directly to the bottom of the cup holder. Right under that is the airbag control unit also.

I plan on using an add-a-fuse for mine.
That plug has to get its power from somewhere so just tap into the wire that runs to that plug

I'm going to look for this plug in down near the passenger feet because I've never seen it in my car, and I've pulled my center console out two times, but I wasn't actively looking for a plug in there. Even if you get the Amazon kit listed, you'd still need a harness to plug it in and the new 3 button 'piece' that I do not know the name for.
No additional harness is required With the Amazon kit. You simply splice into a power wire since the 3 button panel that comes with has an independent power button. Then just connect the ground wire to a body panel bolt anywhere in the dash.
