Cup holder lighting

Recommended Posts

Good evening all,

I don’t drive my 2016 Sport much, but I recently noticed my cup holder lighting doesn’t light up while driving at night. It does come on when entering/ exiting my vehicle though. Is there something I programmed and turned it off or does it not light up while driving? If this is the case, it’s a stupid idea. Unless it has something to do with the reflection off the windscreen at night.

My 2010 Mercury Mariner stays lit after dark. 

Has anyone else experienced or noticed this quirk?

Check in the settings in the center 8" display that the ambient lights are turned on.

Agree with Omar. Check your Display settings.  The color buttons slide up and down to determine brightness.  Perhaps they've all been turned off.

I have had a couple minor issues in my 2019 ST were I lost ambient lighting and also power to the front 12V outlet.  Once was after my battery died, another time was after the trans was reflashed.  

 

Both times I ran ForScan and found codes that basically said components lost communication.  After clearing the codes everything worked again.

Could always try turning off the lighting in settings and then back on. See if that would reset to module. If not possible a battery disconnect  for a minute or two, to reset all modules and let them rediscover their connections.
