We got our new car! Candy Blue SEL Hatchback!

One thing that we missed during the pickup, however, was that the ambient lighting does not seem to be working in the driver side door. Is this an option what I could change, or is this something I need to take to the dealer?

Overall, still thrilled with the car through.

It drives well, no body alignment issues, and no slipping or shuddering so far in the transmission. :)

I would think you have to go back to the dealer. I don't think you can turn it off. Check and see if there is a bulb in the light and if it is blown or not.

Anyone else know if this is an option you can turn off?

I doubt that it is a buld...They are leds and both the lighting in the door handle and in the map pocket is not working. I bet that it is a loose connection in the wiring harness or something like that.

you can turn off the lighting but it will still come on when you open the door, its kind of a visibility aid... so yea it should definitely be working.

Sometimes there's loose connections, like you said ScooterSES, just go back to the dealer. I had a loose connection in my driver footwell and it was fixed in a jiffy.

I have the same problem. The door latch LED works, but the cubby hole does not. It's been like that since Day 1, told the dealership, they pulled open my door and looked around, decided to order the part so it must not have just been a loose connection.

When was your build date?

I had to buy a SE to have a manual tranny.. Sure wish I could have gotten a higher model. Saw the led lights in a SEL sedan at a drive up custard stand and was like JEEZ i wish i had those...[wave]

August 23rd here, so it's probably not a question of dates but rather something else. Take it to the dealership, have them replace it.

The ambient lighting only comes on in the dark so make sure that you try that.

I posted a YouTube video on the ambient lighting feature.

Good luck with the lighting problem, I'm sure it'll be a quick fix for ya ; )

It only comes on at night, and every other led does, but not the drivers door cubby hole.

It should also turn red when open, even during the day. The door latch does, again, the cubby hole does not.
