Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

My dealer can't get the lights to come on even with the instructions. They said it didn't have those menus.

Agreed! two problems:

1.) ISO/TS 16949?
Really? The manufacturer's lack of corrective action is inexcusable. Obviously many defects have been logged through dealer warranty claims. The problem is they don't amount to much $, apparently. Two things capture the attention of management, $ and regulatory intervention. If the problem gets the attention of an agency that has the authority to force action, they'll do something, or if it is costing them tons of cash. Apparently there's a gap in the work instructions in the assembly/build process at the assembly plant or supplier. Since a competent dealer can address it it seems simple enough to fix, but it still is a defect that appears. Quality in their processes is lip service, two years into the build of this model and no corrective action on this yet?.... don't get me started on the 730N...

2.) Inconsistent Dealer Network
If dealers have to be informed by owners that a feature is there, and instructed on how to accomplish the fix, that tells me that there are dealer service providers that shouldn't be providing service under the auspices of a factory authorized service provider. It is the manufacturer that certifies the dealers' service, there should be some accountability. Some dealers are good, others abysmal, how is the vehicle owner supposed to know the difference before visiting. Maybe we should start a forum section rating dealers and service providers...

Try another dealer. I had to fight and fight with my dealer to do it which is a joke - eventually went to another dealer and they had it done in 20min. The instructions in this thread are not exact but very close so the tech should be able to figure it out based on the diagram. The key thing to tell them is that the TIPM setting is not present from the factory but the reset corrects the problem even though it appears nothing is wrong. The tech said they did the reset and didnt think it did anything but sure enough the LED's fired right up.

Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

Hmm, we have a brand new 2012 WK2 and if I hadnt read this post yesterday, I would never have known that there are supposed to be lights in the doors. I searched images.google and my 12 definitely does not have lights or they dont work. However, the LEDs in the cupholder and upper panel work great.

I'm assuming this quirk is attributed to the fact that my TIPM is toast. The dealership has ordered a replacement because my rear windows do not open. Hopefully when the new one comes in and gets installed, the lights and windows will function as normal.

But to re-confirm, Do ALL WK2's (X, Laredo, Limited, Overland) have ambient lighting in the doors?

Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

Okay well 2nd dealer fixed it (not the one I bought it from). They also said they flashed new software for the power train that was out for it. Kind of excited about that one. I pick it up later on.

Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

Hey guys, So what if your WK2 Laredo X doesn't even have them installed from the factory? I went as far as taking the door panel off to see. My built date is 9/2010. If its suppose to have them do I make them install them or am I screwed?
