Interior LEDs

Is there an LED strip that lights, just next to the gear selector? On my car the ones on the facia and doors light, but not the one by the gear selector. Is there a separate fuse?

Grateful for any help!

i think its only on the right side, possibly you dont notice it in a uk car if they didnt move it :)

Its less noticeable if you select an 'and white' lighting scheme. Maybe that's why you can't see it so try a different lighting scheme.

No, it’s on the left side OK at least on my car. :) I have it selected in blue at present.

I don’t know about a separate fuse.

There's only an LED strip on one side; that is on the left of the gear selector on RHD cars. I fell for it too.....

I second that. It’s only on once side of the gear selector. Thought I had one missing!

Strangely, I took the car in, they said it needed a new LED, they ordered, and also upgraded the car OS. I arranged a day for fitting, and when I got in the car, the LED was working. Maybe loose connection... will wait and see
