What all is part of the ambient lighting that you can change colors? Haven't been sitting in the car at night yet to mess around with it, just got the car a few days ago. I notice the dash light on the passenger side, I think maybe the door bins as well? Pic shows footwell too, but I have never noticed that lighting up. Anything else? Backseat too? Can't seem to find a description anywhere.

Dash light and door lights UNDER the arm rest. Controlled through the dash settings menu.

The lights in the footwells ONLY light up when the headlights are ON and the Stinger is in PARK. They do not change color. Static at white.

Old post-but just bought a used GT....I don’t have any options for ambient lighting, 2 options in user settings is all I have. Is this something I can hook up or do a quick fix myself?

No ambient lighting under ’Lighting, User Settings’ FIX (for me):
Car off, inside on left side, take fuse panel cover off, turn switch off, pull “Module 1” out, make sure it’s not blown-put it back in. Switch back on, turn car on-any luck?

My story...
Follow-up to my rage of not accessing Ambient lighting settings. So took my Stinger to local Kia dealership...2X...their service advisor couldn’t figure it out and their master tech couldn’t figure it out. So I am scheduled to come back in 2 weeks...Fuc that, I’m a electrician, so I started looking, reading and watching YT videos(again) came to conclusion no one knows why or has a fix for the “standard feature all Stingers should have.”
Finally I visited another Stinger forum, a said they “pulled the Module 1 out, inspected it for breaks(wasn’t blown) and put it back in...IT WORKED!” I shut the car off and back on-it freakin worked...Ambient lighting fixed.

Purchased a 2021 Kia Stinger GT Line. When I try to access the Ambient Lighting there is nothing on the screen?? No mention of ambient lighting at all. I did factory reset the car upon purchasing, did I wipe out the ambient lighting? We do not have the disc for storing the info, is this necessary???

Thanks!

Im going to have to try this. I only just recently noticed that my ambient lighting is off and its completely GONE from the menus where it used to be. I was like... WTF. Not sure if it had to do with a recent head unit nav and audio update I did. 2018 GT2 as well.
