Hi all, so I collected an A200 Premium Plus almost 3 weeks ago and love the ambient lighting, especially at night, it really sets the car apart from some of its rivals. I have the ‘ocean blue’ preset on but recently, the vent on the drivers right side is stuck on yellow no matter what I do to the settings! I’ve reset the system completely but it just sits there on yellow. I’ve also noticed that when I lock the car, all the lights go off except this one vent, which fades 30 seconds later. Has anybody got any ideas? It’s booked into Mercedes at the end of the month but just wondered if there’s anything in the mean time that I can do. Not a massive issue and the car drives great, but for £30k-ish you want it to be right. Thanks in advance!

Wrong wiring or broken vent. Mine didn't light up at all and they had to replace it, got car back same day and all is well.

Thanks flow, I’ll just sit tight until it goes in, they’re giving me a courtesy car anyway, hopefully another a class and not a c63 ?

Yes, ambient lighting is part of the Premium pack. Isn’t part of the standard AMG line.

I see i am not the only one. Last week my light went white. Cannot change it at all. Apart from vents that light up red and blue when temp change all the rest is white.
Reset all with no luck.
Now when starting the car light will not go on at all, until you press temp button up or down. Then will come on white.
Booked in MB but did u get your sorted ?? I assume its electrical problem...

Cheers

Just come across this thread after searching for exactly the same issue. Ours is working again after deadlocking the car, and leaving it for about 20 mins. After unlocking the colour was back to normal.

Mine went in and they told me they would have to order a new wiring loom (apparently the whole ambient light system is one loom that sits behind the dash). However, on collecting my car, all the lights are now back to normal with no issues at all. It’s been two weeks since I got it back and not a single problem so far *touch wood*. They did tell me that a software update had been done for the interior lights and the multi beam LED. So happy bunny for now!

Hi,

I have had my A250 Prem+ for around 3 months now and today, my ambient light has been messed up. It only stays on the white/yellow colour. I have tried resetting it and nothing has changed. If I take it into the dealer. How long will it take for the people that have had it done?

Sorry to bump this old thread, but I have Ambient Lighting Issues and it's obviously logical to post in here!

Anyway, so as the pictures show, there's a wire and connector hanging down from a cut out in the plastic where presumably a light fitting once was?

Surely Mercedes wouldn't build the car without the ambient light fitting, considering there's ambient lighting in the other 3 footwells?

(unfortunately it turns out this was a hire car from new, for the first year and you know how some people seem to treat hire cars!)

Also there is ambient lighting slots in the rear offside door handle and door pocket, just that they've never worked since I got the car. You would've thought the recent MBUX FUP3 update would've fixed that?

Back to Mercedes then to have them fixed!

Does anyone know if these issues will be covered by warranty?

Shocking people can steal from cars and get away with it and not even noticed by Mercedes when they got the car and sold it on!

Well, I phoned to book it in, but considering my other issue (navigation not showing in driver's screen), I have to wait while they're in contact with a company in Portugal and Milton Keynes (random), to find out a fix to the problem and then they can do both whilst they have the car in!

Yeah just came back to my car after 30mins and ambient lighting stuck on, annoying. Maybe it’s self updating? ?
I had the same issue today for first time. And managed to fix it by going
to the ambient lighting settings and change the brightness to 0%.
