I just bought a Charcoal Beige SEL V6, and it came with pretty much everything but the auto lamps (?!?). I want them. The car has the sensor in the dash (because when I unlock the doors at night with the remote, the lights come on, plus I can see the sensor on the dash), so does anyone know if I just change the headlight switch and get the one with the "A" if that will make them work? Ford has been known to do things like this in the past..........
the sensor in the dash??? the auto headlamps sensor is built into the back of your rearveiw mirror. Almost looks like a small black radar detector up there.
looking to your dash...
Does your headlight switch already have a setting (one to the left of center or off position) that has a lightbulb with an "A" in it? If it does then you should have no problems what so ever.
I have the auto lamps, however, the headlamps switch will not allow me to turn twice to the left (what looks to be a fog light setting)???
It allows for two positions on the right (running lamps, standard lights).
I too had the same issue with my lights when I first got my fusion and I realized you have to pull the knob out to get the fog lights on.
I just have mine set to A and pulled out, so when the lights come on automatically my headlights and fog lights come on at the same time.
They look awesome with the Luminics Ultra White bulbs (all 6), but they dont cast enough light far enough on the road.
Regardless, they will stay installed, because the look so damn cool...
