Footwell Lights?

Post by Baker69 » Wed Aug 30, 2017 6:36 am

Hi guys,

According to the specs I've read my J11 Tekna should have Footwell Lights but I don't seem to be able to find them??

I've looked underneath the dashboard both sides and can't see any bulbs or bulb housings, I thought perhaps the bulb(s) may have blown.

It has the ambient mood lighting but the spec says it should have Ambient Mood Lighting and Footwell Lights? I had Footwell Lights on my J10 Tekna.

Never seen on mine; member Dave B has a thread on the LED's he's added to light the footwell.

Gel, new to me also unless the reference is to the Ambient Lighting around the Centre Console or even the Door Sill Lighting.
Baker69, what I installed are still working so for a minor outlay and some electrical know how it is worth a go - Dave ;)

Baker69, as Gel mentioned I did add a post on this subject and if this helps and is quicker for you try this (unfortunately it looks like the pics have disappeared from the old post) - Dave :)

I've just copied and pasted this off a specification sheet for a 2014 Tekna;

Interior Features
12V socket
Front armrest
Front cupholders x 2
Illuminated glovebox
Leather gearknob
Leather steering wheel
Luggage area divider
Rake/reach adjustable steering wheel
Rear armrest with 2 cupholders

Interior Lights
Ambient interior lighting
Footwell ambient lighting
Map reading lamp

Fitting them is a job I can do ok, but I'm not sure whether I want to at the moment, I thought the car already had them fitted but I never thought about them until this morning as it was quite dark when I left for work, I thought the bulbs had gone. As I said, my J10 Tekna had them so why not the J11????

I can't believe it's got so much kit but they've left off something like this?
