I've just taken delivery of a '68 reg Focus MK4, 1.5 Ecoboost Titanium X Estate with 8 speed auto transmission.  This was bought via a Ford Dealer from Ford Direct and all the specifications I have seen say that all Titanium and Titanium X models  have Courtesy light - Ambient LED courtesy lighting (Crystal Blue lighting), footwell area, inner door levers, door map pockets, front and rear map reading lights, instrument panels.
 
On mine the only blue lighting, apart from the switches and buttons on the dashboard  is in the bottom of the cup holders, there are none in the doors or the footwells.
 
I can find no switches for this in settings or in the Sync system.
 
Has anyone any advice please, or is this not fitted to estates or automatics?
 
Thanks

Hi, I have just downloaded a MK4 full brochure from Ford uk official site.

 

Yes, it does say for Titanium and Titanium X it has what you say

 

Any info in your Handbook? IF the lighting is adjustable, it will be in the H/B, as it is in the Mk5 Mondeo H/B

 

Can you access Ford ETIS to see the build spec. If not, and you want it, send me your reg via a PMessage and I will do it and send it to you

Thanks for your reply.
 
The only info in the manual about ambient lighting is "Adjust the Ambient lighting using the touchscreen."
 
Unfortunately I can't find anything in the information panel or the touchscreen relating to ambient lighting.
 
Thanks for your offer to send the Ford ETIS info. I don't have access and now I believe you you need to be a registered dealer or independent trader to gain access so I would really appreciate the info. The reg is on its way.
 
Once again, thanks.

If the LED's have individual lighting control it maybe that some of them might be turned down. According to the html version of the manual it is in settings/ambient lighting

Info sent Trev

Etis does state - 

  • Interior Lighting-Ambient LED
  •  With Footwell Lights

 

I am not up to speed on the Mk4 Focus - footwell lights could mean footwell lights that only come on when you open a front door

 

However, as said earlier - the Ford brochure does say as per your comments in post one and the pictures in the brochure also suggest same

 

It could be that only the Vignale has "adjustable" lighting via touch screen

Thanks for the replies.

 

It appears it should have ambient lighting and I think I can see where the actual led lights are under the dashboard and in the door handles if not in the map pockets So it's over to the dealer to sort out.  I'll post what happens.  I did see on the internet somewhere that Ford were cutting back on ambient lighting at the start of 2018 cars, so mine could be affected by that even if it was manufactured in October last year.

 

Thanks for your help.

Thank you for the update.
It won't be the first time brochure/spec sheets are wrong.
Possibly compare with another veh same model derivative.
I think with the spec you have it should deffo have ambient lighting in front foot Wells or at least footwell lights that come on when you open front doors.

Thanks for all the help.  Took the car to the dealer and apparently there was a loose wire in the drivers door causing the ambient lighting to fail on that door. All sorted now.

Thats brilliant - sorted.

 

Many thanks for "closing" thread by advising the outcome - so many people don't, and it is a nuisance
