Question Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

Well first hello to all! I picked up my Laredo X package on friday and I love it. But.....yesterday it blew a heater hose and it needed to be towed, so began my jeepless internet searching night and I found this site....now from all of these posts i gather the leds are standard? I called the service guy this morning and told him about them not being on and what to do and he said he would check. So he called and said it was all done and i asked about the lights and he said they pulled the panel off and there were no lights? Called Jeep and they said it is an option and not standard. I looked in the door slots and I think I can see the LED, so is it standard or not?

Angry Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

UPDATE..... Ok, four calls to jeep later... I tried the VIN number options and told them about the LBRS code, which mine has but refers to the LED aimable lights. They searched and searched and found nothing refering to those lights. All they can figure is that mine is an earlier build and they started to get put in sometime after. When I look in the slots on the door and pocket I can see a bluish wire, so is it fiber optic or actual LED? and how easily can it be seen if it is an LED?

Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

Welcome

When was your Jeep built? My August 2010 built Laredo "E" has the LED lights in the doors. They worked from day 1.

May 2010? Wow you must have one of the very first 2011 GCs that were made. Could very well be lacking the LED lights...I can't say for sure. Perhaps someone else knows?

With your lights turned on, you can look up there and see a faint bluish light. My dealer did everything sans listening to my advice on how to fix them. In the end I pulled the door panels and rewired them to the window switch lights.

Went to a diff dealer and read the post to him and even looked on the computer while he did it and there was nothing for ambient lighting but he hit reconfigure and i still have nothing?

Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

Odd, this seems to be a Laredo X issue but not limited to early productions necessarily. My Laredo X has a build date of April 2011 and I have this same issue. In fact, the sales person described this feature as one of the "cool" things about the interior and I've yet to see it. Will need to have them address this at the first oil change.
