How do I adjust the Ambient Lighting in my Lincoln vehicle?

The available Ambient Lighting feature allows you to personalize your vehicle's interior. It turns on when the ignition and the headlamps are switched on, and, depending on your vehicle, illuminates:

  • Cupholders.
  • Door release handles.
  • Front and rear footwells.
  • Console storage.
  • Passenger-side instrument panel light bar.
  • Media bin.
