ambient dimmable option

Hi anyone knows about LeD ambient dimmable option ?

I am trying to add that feature. It is one of my favorite options. I saw on my friends car and it is very nice when you are driving in dark. It is a package that dealer says it cannot be added later.. it turns on the foot lights and some led strips on the doors too.
The main feature is the overhead dome led light that gets on but dimmed at dark while you are driving and it very nice. You need to experience it to see what I mean. To activate it there should be a button on your overhead console.

i am thinking to buy an overhead console with that button on eBay to see if I can get it to work. I want to switch the whole console with mine. It probably needs programming too .
any input?

hi
did you install the LED strips? If you did please posts some pictures and some infos how you did it. I like to do it too.

also I finally change all the interior bulbs to LED and interestingly I found out that those LED bulb are dimmable and you can do dimm them on the dome light. I though this is good to know.

Thanks for this DogWood.
You mentioned all 16 bulbs are all of the same type. Are they T10's, T20's or festoons?

Dome takes 2 lights, reading lights another 2.

Interior lights: dome (2), foot wells(2), door cutesy lights(4), rear reading lights (2), glove box(1), cargo area (2) = 13 for interior only, all use the same bulb type.

the under hood light(1) also uses the same bulb and the 2 lights on the rear hatch do as well = 16

they are T10's

the two in the rear hatch need to be the same length as the stock bulbs (or shorter) the others aren't as much as an issue

Just The license plate ones were different.

Kayvan, are license plate bulbs festoons?
