Ambient lighting

Post by natz169 » Fri Apr 06, 2018 10:19 pm

Hello

I ordered a Tekna+ which comes with ambient lighting as part of the standard spec.

I paid £130 extra for ambient lighting in the footwell. However, the only light I can see in the footwell is one which comes on for 30 secs when the door is opened. It’s a small white light on the door side.

I am trying to clarify whether this is the ‘ambient lighting’ which comes as standard or the accessory? I was expecting something that stays on all the time. Thanks.

Natz169, firstly welcome to the Forum. We installed additional Ambient Footwell Lighting System in our 14 QQ Tekna from a UK Supplier at a very reasonable Price using Strip LED's. This was to Supplement the Centre Console Ambient Lighting System. Perhaps there is only one light illuminating the Footwells but I would have thought it should stay on longer than 30secs and at least whilst the Doors are Open. I would think that if this System is installed from a Nissan Dealer it should be the Nissan Part No. KE630-HV51A. Take a look at the attachments and I would suggest contacting your Dealer, perhaps he has installed his own System - Dave :)

Thanks for your reply. Yes, that's my thoughts also. I was expecting it to stay on all the time!

I have just purchased that kit ( managed to get it for just under £50 ) to fit into my 2017 QQ Tekna its a fairly straight forward fit an I am more than able to fit it myself to save the fitting cost but i can't work out from the instructions where you get the power from it says there is a plug on the drivers side under dash but i can't work out where

Are you saying That’s where to the plug it in ? The cable supplied has a pass through Is one end taped off? I did try plugging into that socket bit nothing happened maybe the fuse is missing

UPDATE

The plug you need to look for is behind the kick plate next to the accelerator - take that off and you will find it taped to the wiring loom
