Question Dash light color?

I was told that on my 2012 V6 Premium, that I could "change" the color of the dashboard guage illumination. I cannot seem to find anything re in the owners manual. Whats the scoop? Mine are now purple.

Ambient lighting! It's really kinda neat actually. Those three buttons to the left of the steering wheel control the lighting. Press the "setup" button and scroll through the options until you hit the lighting part and then scroll to the right color you want! You can change the ambient lighting, the dash lighting and the halo colors as well.

Re: Dash light color?

They didn't put center display screens until '13 I think... You would just have to use the display you have where the odo is I guess. I don't really know what options the '10-'12s have.

Like dgrum said... The 3 buttons on the left side of the steering wheel. "Setup, info and reset". Mess with those 3 buttons and you'll see.

If you ever get someone new in your car, ask their favorite color and change it to that. It surprises them even more lol and it's in setup

Re: Dash light color?

I think the '13s have an RGB option that allows you to alter the spectrum and customize your own color. I'd confirm this but #1: I'm too lazy to look through the manual. #2: I don't have a premium, so I can't check just by trying (refer to #1).

My 07 has RGB option for the dash
