Ford Focus Ambient Lighting

I was just hoping someone could clear this up for me. I just recently purchased a 2012 Ford Focus Titanium and was wondering if it has ambient lighting? It does have the buttons next too where the sun roof buttons are but the lady at the dealership said it does not have ambient lighting. I also seen that there was a little illuminated strip of light where the cup holders are but couldn't see anything anywhere else however it was during the day.

Here is what it says according to ETIS.

Nope, just because you don't have that separate feature which afaik isn't even installed on any Focus at all as the "footwell lights" were incandescent does not mean you don't have ambient lighting.

You do have the ambient lighting as evidenced by the button on the roof console as well as this particular line from Ford ETIS, ETIS is only pulling information from Oasis, although sometimes its not 100% accurate.

I thought all Ti's have ambient lighting....that's one of the features of it being the Ti. Have you tried...twisting the knob up there? Odds are, maybe not, and the amb lighting is turned all the way off..... Would be funny if that's why it's not showing up lol....

ok thanks I guess ill have to check it out when I go pick it up from the dealership on thursday and take it for a night time drive, there putting command start in it right now. Only reason I am asking here is because the dealer looked a little under the passenger side foot well and said since she couldnt "feel" a light so it didnt have it.

Then when I asked her about the buttons she said it was just a standard that all fords have but its only activated if you have that feature otherwise there just buttons that dont do anything. Just like how the vehicle has an SD card slot for navigation but doesnt actually have navigation on it.

Mine has it, but I have a 2013 Titanium which list in the 2013 brochure as being standard on the Titanium. Look down at your cup holder, it should be lit and color adjustable on the overhead console. I have to say the ambient lighting in the Focus is less flamboyant than it is in my 2011 Fusion SEL and it really has that Tron look.

The SD card slot isn't even exclusively for Navigation... your dealership staff needs to do some research and learn about the vehicles they sell. Ambient lighting is standard on the Titanium, and the SD slot is used for Nav in vehicles Nav-equipped otherwise you're more than welcome to use your own SD card for music/media.

My Ford S does not have these buttons? so it being standard, is wrong.

But from reading your ETIS, you have ambient lighting man.

It wasn't standard on the base model, but it was a standard feature of the higher end models (e.x. the SEL and Ti).
