How do I adjust the Ambient Lighting in my Lincoln?

You can adjust your interior lighting using your SYNC®* system (if equipped) or with the buttons on your overhead console (vehicles without SYNC).

This feature allows you to personalize your vehicle interior. It turns on when the ignition and the headlamps are switched on, and, depending on your vehicle, it illuminates:

  • Cupholders.
  • Door map pockets and release handles.
  • Front and rear footwells.
  • Console storage.
  • Passenger-side instrument panel light bars.
  • Media bins.

Changing Your Vehicle's Ambient Lighting

Select your SYNC generation (gen) from the drop-down options below to learn how to adjust the Ambient Lighting in your vehicle.

If you need assistance determining the generation of your SYNC system, select the first drop-down option.
