@TomVIn your picture below, I see a hole between the two 6x9 holes. Do you assume that it is the same hole that the 12 speaker Fusion uses to mount a 3.5" speaker? I assume that all the main frame is shared between the Fusion. Thanks.
Yes, I have looked at that and also the owners manual but I have not seen anything. Now there maybe something I missed. Just to recap all of the map lights do work by the on off switches and the door ajar sensors are working
No. That generation of MKZ did not have that option. I had a 2010 and 2012, so I didn't raise that possibility. The 2nd-gen cars have a "darkness" switch for the interior lights. Handy if you're on a nighttime stakeout.😜
Hi hjski. Still don't have a solution to your original interior light issue. However, your Owners Manual states that the switches below the trunk release are for the Ambient Lighting (as you guessed previously). The switch to the right turns them on/off. The one to the left controls intensity/brightness.
I am not seeing any switches like that. I also thought there would be something like that but I am not seeing it. I includes some pictures of the map lights and at the dimmer controls. Those light go on when I hit those buttons but not when I open the door
I had to read and re-read to understand the issue but I am a little confused.
There were vehicles I owned in the past the have 3 switch positions for the interior lights. Does your switch happen to have "ON", "OFF" and "DOOR" position with the latter being in the middle position?
The map light near the sunglasses holder, they are what I would think should be coming on. There is just an on and off switch. Two up front and 2 in the back seat.
Now down at the bottom left there are 4 buttons, one to pop the trunk, one to change the ambient light color, another is a dimmer for dash lights and the forth I am not really sure what it is, maybe that one is adjusting the darkest of the ambient lights .
thanks for helping me think this through
Thanks for the discussion, guys. I've learned a lot. I just activated the Lincoln Way app, but i don't like having to allow it access to all the files on my phone so, apparently, that method won't work for me.
Hi hjski. Since it does not seem to be a door switch issue, just thinking out loud here: Do the interior light switches located on the roof console/sunglasses holder have an "Off" or "Dark" position on your 2011 Hybrid?
And I assume the interior dimmer located next to the headlight switch is not turned off (although I don' think that would disable the interior lights)?
Keep us updated and good luck.
