How to Change Your Mustang Interior Light Settings
In 2005, Ford released the fifth-generation Mustang. With its release came a new feature known as MyColor. Delphi’s MyColor allows owners to mix and match lighting at the touch of a button to create more than 125 color backgrounds. It is an included option on Mustangs equipped with the Interior Upgrade Package.
In 2008, Ford added the interior ambient lighting package on specially equipped Mustangs, which offers the option of illuminating the front and rear footwells and front cup holders with any one of seven colors. The driver or front passenger can choose from red, orange, blue, indigo, violet, green, and yellow.
Want to adjust your Mustang’s interior lighting? It’s pretty simple! You’ll need about two to five minutes to change your Mustang interior lights using MyColor (with a properly equipped 2005 or newer Mustang) or Ambient Lighting (with a properly equipped 2008 Mustang).
Press the RESET Button
You should now be in the Display Color setup menu. Pressing the RESET button, located next to the SETUP button, will allow you to scroll through six existing color settings: Green, Blue, Purple, White, Orange, Red. The last menu option is MyColor/Adjust. When you reach this setting, hold the RESET button down again for 3 seconds until you enter the MyColor setup screen.
*If, by chance, you fail to hold the button down for three seconds and accidentally leave this screen, press the RESET button again at the prompt. You will progress through the six existing color settings again. Then at the MyColor/Adjust screen, hold the RESET button down again for three seconds.
Create Your Own Color Within the Adjust Mode
You should now be in the adjust mode. The screen will show you red, green, blue, and exit options. To select either of the colors, press the RESET button until you are within that color setting. To adjust the amount of specified color you want in you custom Mustang interior lightning, press the SETUP button. Once you’ve created your custom color, hold the RESET button down for three seconds. If you do not hold the button down for three seconds, it will simply continue to cycle through your color options.
Press the Ambient Lighting Setting Switch to Cycle Through the Colors
Pressing the ambient lighting setting switch, in properly equipped Mustangs, will cycle through the various colors offered (red, orange, blue, indigo, violet, green, and yellow). These colors will illuminate the front and rear footwells and front cup holders. When you reach the end of the cycle, the ambient lighting will switch off. Use this setting if you wish not to use the ambient lighting feature.
