2018 shift console ford escape
does the shift console on the 1018 ford escape light up or is this for show only
the one one the DASH light up..so if they don't turn on at night time why have
them on console day time yes night time NO ?
Apparently it's just for show. I just took my 2018 back to the dealer and they said that the gear shift lights do not light up at night because everything is on the dash.
Was told the same thing at dealership, Ridiculous for Ford to NOT have the console light up. I know some penny pinching engineer decided to remove the lighting to cut costs but at night, that lighting NEEDS to be available as a back up in case the dash lighting/illumination stops working. It's a SAFETY Item, not a Cost cutting option! Just Saying Ford!
Yes. I noticed this last night. Just called my Ford Dealership. They checked the schematics and no shifter lighting> Not safe and looks terrible! What a shame.
yes i agree should have console lighting a low or no cost item
Just discovered the same thing in my 2019 Escape,
Me, too, and I am NOT happy. This is just damn scary to not be able to see the gear shift.
Same here. I got scared knowing no lighting on my gear shift.. not safe if I had known i wouldn't have purchase the car 2weeks ago.
I am not happy with the darkness of the console at night either. Also....the Gearshift somtimes PINCHES my hand when I'm putting it in gear. That is painful and really makes me angry. I love my Escape.....other than that. I wouldn't have bought it had I realized.
My 05 did but not my 2019....really disappointed when I asked the dealer as I was picking up my new escape.
Like others have said, I’m pretty sure my 2019 had a lit gear shifter, now it don’t work and the dealer tells me its not supposed to light up
