Experienced with 11+ Mycolor/Ambient lighting

I have a small problem that I haven't dug into deep yet, but figured I would see if anyone knows or suspects what may be up.

I normally just leave mycolor setting on the Iceblue and never really mess with all the options on the car. Today I noticed that every light is normal accept driver side door sill that says "Mustang". It is green!! The rest is iceblue as should be. I can scroll thru other colors and get a complete match of all the other color options but when I get back to the iceblue the sill is green. Never had it apart yet so not sure whats making the blue in that sill but I guess I will be finding out. Maybe carry for warranty but I figured to see what some of you know when it comes to the wiring/bulbs and etc. on these 11+ prem. package stangs. If anybody knows much about what to expect when I pull that sill , please give me heads up. Thanks in advance fellows.

I don't think there is much under the sill itself, just a bunch of wires, some LED diodes and simple PCBs. I would guess something in the LEDs or PCB have gone bad and that sill would need replaced.

What ended up happening? I have the same problem. Only driver's side door sill is a different colour compared to passenger side and inside ambient light. When switching colours, everything would change but driver's side. Tried system reset and did not seem to fix problem.

That's an odd problem. Sounds like it could either be the LED controller or the door sill assembly. I'd take it in to the dealer. It should still be under warranty.

Well, it would be under the standard B2B 3 years so, if it is still under warranty, it'll be running out fast so, get on it. The warranty is from purchase date not MY.

Warranty is out. Passed the KMs already. That's why I'm asking to see if it's an easy fix I can do on my own.

You can see if you can get your hands on a new door sill assembly. That's where I would start.

Yours are too? That's strange. Is green the default if something goes wrong with them?

Just another data point for this thread: my driver door sill was also stuck on green. No amount of fiddling/changing colours would fix it. Dealer ended up replacing the door sill assembly under warranty.
