      Interior Accent Lighting

      In the settings on the touchscreen, what exactly is referred to as "Interior Accent Lighting?"

      I've turned it on/off and haven't noticed much of a difference.

      Surrounding the center of the dash is a thich red stripe. I feel as though that should light up. Does it for anyone else?
      The car is a 15 GT.

      To the left of the steering wheel should be 2 dials, one farthest from the steering wheel is for the gauges and dome light on/off. The second is closest to the wheel and controls accent lighting brightness..

      I find it odd that the red "island" or whatever they call it is not lit up. If adjusting the brightness with that dial doesn't fix the problem, I know there is an interior lighting fuse. (location is as usually, open driver door and the cover is on the side of the dash.)

      It turns the ambient lighting off for the car so depending on what options you have, such as the light around the dash, factory foot well lighting, and door panel ambient lighting. As said above look to the left of the steering wheel on the dash you should have two dimmer dials. One that controls the brightness of the gauges and dome lights, and the other that controls the brightness of the ambient lighting.

      Thanks guys, I'll give that a shot today. I attached a pic to show you guys what I was originally referring too.

      Also, the footwell lighting is controlled by the option within the settings?

      If you don't see a change in lighting when moving the dial or turning it on and off via the 8.4 then it has to be a fuse? I assume?

      I was able to get it working, you guys were right, it was just the dial setting. The reason I got confused was that it was on once, then went off. So somehow I must've accidently touched the dial in the past.

      Is the footwell lighting is controlled by the option within the settings?

      I don't believe there is any foot well lighting, at least on stock vehicles *I can only refer to a 2016 GT*. The only "Accent lighting" will be handles/door pockets. (and center console cup holders only 2013's I believe)

      If you had foot well lighting, it may have been installed by the previous owner and is likely to have just a button on it unless they tapped it into the stock harness... which is difficult and unlikely.
