Another Ambient Light Question?

Does blue ambient light at footwell light up after all doors closed?

My lights light up when doors are open, but as soon as doors are closed and engine is started, footwell blue lights are turned off. I still have blue lights on door handle, etc though.

From search, it sounds like there is no setting for individually setting the ambient light theme, like the one in in Audi A8.

Thanks,

You can set the interior lighting to your preference via the MID. There is whole section on this in the owner's manual that steps you through any changes you want to make.

Mine is 06 model, and there are only four setups under "Lighting Setup"

1. Interior Light Dimming Time -> Not it
2. Headlight Audo Off Timer -> Not it
3. Headlight Audo Off Timer -> Not it
4. Auto Light Sensitivity -> Not it

INTERIOR LIGHTING

The theme of efficient driver control and easy to read components carries on after dark in the RL. The analog instruments are LED backlit, with high-contrast markings and a subdued blue accent hue. The progressive self-illuminating gauge package gives the car a "welcoming" feel. When the door is first opened, the instrument lighting comes to life, and then brightens progressively to 100 percent when the ignition is switched on. The illuminated instrument needles and enunciator lights then come alive, indicating that the car is ready to go. At the end of the drive, the instrument lighting dims progressively.

All the interior switches are illuminated to make them easy to locate at night, including those on all four doors and the steering wheel. In addition to front and rear overhead interior lights and map lights, the RL also has a complement of low-level interior ambient cabin lighting. Blue front and rear low-level ambient lighting in the ceiling illuminates the front center console and the rear flip-down armrest. The front foot wells also have low-level ambient lighting that brightens substantially when the doors are opened.

Front and rear interior door handle areas are also illuminated to make them easy to find, and the front door storage compartments, glove compartment and the front armrest compartment are all internally illuminated. All four doors have courtesy lights that are illuminated when the doors are open. The RL interior lights feature "theater dimming," which can be set by the driver to any of several rates via the Multi-information display. The trunk has interior lighting, plus the trunk lid has lighting that illuminates the bumper and sill area when the lid is opened.

Thank you all for info. I just verified that my footwells does illuminate after doors closed and car is started. They are just really really dim...

According to TempaRL, there should be several rates of theatre lighting setup on MID. Where in MID? It does not seem to be under "Lighting Setup"

Thanks,

This is the old thread, but I still wonder how to change brightness level of these blue ambient? I want them stay 100% brightness all the time.

I don't think you can set them at 100% the entire time? Those settings tie into the fob, hold the up and down button on the right side of the wheel simultaneously and it should get you into the fob specific menu to make ambient lighting adjustments.

There are no ambient lighting adjustments. It is what it is. There are blue ambient lights in the footwells, interior door handles of all four doors, front door bins. There are also the blue ambient spotlights that shine down by the front map lights and the rear dome light.
