Illuminated Cupholders?

Greets all,

I swear I saw this somewhere in this forum, but cannot for the life of me, figure out where I saw it.

At any rate, the illuminated cupholders (and other bits here and there) don't seem to be illuminating.

Ideas?

...again, I swear I saw someone in here say they had the same issue.

Re: Illuminated Cupholders?

I don't think it was this forum, I've read every post since this summer and I don't recall reading that. I could only think to check the fuse but if blown then why. Other guesses is the standard stuff, burnt bulb/led, loose connector, pinched wire, bad ground, all things for the dealer to track down.

I know this may be obvious, but did you check the roller on the left hand side of the console to the right of the headlights knob? Make sure to turn it up. It is the dimmer for the ambient and cabin lights. It clicks twice at the top. Once for the highest brightness setting on ambient lights (cup holder) and a second time for the cabin lights to come on. Make sure you don't leave the cabin lights on.

Re: Illuminated Cupholders?

Figured it out...

Moron moment.

The full illumination doesn't kick in until the headlights are on. I just noticed lastnight while getting crap out of the Pez Dispensing Hippo that most of the illumination was not on when I opened the door in the dark (but some was), and I swear it was all working when I got home.

..yeah, this morning I noticed it all working in the dark when the headlights came on.
