I know I’ve seen a post where someone was staying the type of led or wires needed to actually have the ambient lights change color. I can’t find it now. I have it all enabled in forscan with the my color screen. The question is the bronco even capable of this? If I bought rgb led’s or less from an older F150 to install can it be done? I don’t really want to go full aftermarket setup since I already have the ambient lights.

Blazing new ground. I think 2017 was the last year that Ford offered multi colored ambient lightning. My 2018 Raptor shows the option on the display however it only has single colored LEDs.

I’ll bet the wiring is not there anymore. Oh well. More investigation needed.

You enabled My Color ambient lighting with ForScan on your Bronco?

You enabled My Color ambient lighting with ForScan on your Bronco?
Yes but of course it doesn’t actually work lol. Hence the question on what would I need to have it work. I’m assuming 4 wires to the led’s ground plus a wire for each diode if an rgb led. Since it’s cold AF here I haven’t got under the dash to check things out. Was hoping for someone with knowledge to come along.

Lol you missed then part of I do not want all the aftermarket stuff since I have the ambient lighting already. But thank you I have seen these and may have to resort to a setup like this if I can’t figure a way to make it look more factory.

found some info on a f150 forum were a person was able to swap in the earlier lights and make it work. I have to buy some less and report back.

Thanks I know sync 3 can do it I have the same screen now in my sync 4(I think 12” screen high package). But maybe I can lookup the led’s uses in the explorer.

Finally got the led’s in the mail. Making progress next to add cup holder ambient lighting and under seat for the rear footwell. Probably take another month for those to get here. (Took a month for the two front ones to show up.)

Very nice. So looks like it can work...at least so far. Simple plug-n-play on the lights? Can you share part numbers needed and possible sources?
