In the brochure under Comfort and Convenience for Ambient lighting it indicates that the Touring has cup holder / door / footwell lighting. I took this to mean that when driving at night, there would be a light glow in these areas. A salesman indicated that the ambient lighting was blue, which along with my above inderstanding made me really excited for this feature. Of course, was always at the dealership in daylight before buying, so couldn't see this first hand. Was disappointed last night to not have this experience. I can't find anything about settings for the ambient lighting anywhere in the owners manual. Am I missing something, or did I just misunderstand how it works?

It might be different in Canada but in the U.S. the Passport did not get blue ambient lighting. I wish it did. My friends new Odyssey has it and I like it a lot. I was disappointed to find it wasn't in the Passport.

Am I understanding how it works, i.e. ambient light while driving at night? I didn't really notice any glow from these areas, blue or otherwise. If that is how it is supposed to work, it shouldn't take much to swap out for blue LEDs. I couldn't find any settings where it could have been turned off on mine.

Are you saying your lights aren’t blue, or you don't have light at all? I have a Canadian Touring and I do have lights which are white, and very dim. I think it is so that it is not distracting.

I guess I do, but very dim is a good description, to the point that I am not even sure if there is any in the driver's side footwell or around the centre beverage holders. There is a faint glow in the passenger side footwell. Hopefully there is an easy way to swap out the current LEDs for something brighter, and in my case, blue.

Took a bit of a closer look last night and found the ambient light locations. They are behind frosted covers similar to the one in the centre console. Will take a closer look to see how easy they are to access the bulbs behind the cover. Not sure about the strip around the cup holders, though. Would love to get it swapped for a brighter blue.
