    2017 Ambient Lighting No Longer Above Glove Box?!

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hey Folks,

    I recently picked up a brand new 2017 Fiesta ST and noticed it doesn't have ambient lighting above the glove box like my 2014 did.... Is this the same for all 2017 model years or is mine defective?

    Picture below for the area I'm talking about:



    Thanks!

    I searched last night but couldnt find anything. If you get a chance, look inside that opening for a led. Its skinny and takes up the whole distance of the slot. You can even feel it there. If you have a light there, its should be working. Hope this helps.

    Not that I've personally experienced it, but there were some people on the forums here who complained that the light reflected off the side window glass and interfered with their ability to view the passenger side mirror. They could have eliminated it for that reason.

    I'm one of those folks, couldn't stand the reflection so I disconnected that one.

    I had my 2014 FiST tinted, my 2016 is not tinted yet. I disconnected it as soon as I got home from the dealer the day I bought my car.

    For those that experience it, I suspect window tint may exacerbate the issue.

    Can you explain to the poster, how you accessed the wiring harness to unplug the LED strip ?

    Another possible indicator, is to check parts catalogs that is specific to the 2017, to see whether they include the strip or the wiring harness for it. (dealership parts center will help with this)

    Your right about the window tint making the reflection worse. To unplug the LED drop the glove box door reach up on the left side of the opening and feel for the wiring harness until it go's into the bulb holder. I just pulled it out. You cant see up in there. I left it dangling the light still burns but you cant see it at all because its up in the dash.

    My 2017 doesnt have that one, and I'm glad it doesnt. Would seriously affect my night vision.
