i've got an 08 SE w/moon&tune....
there is no light in the back...
Any suggestions on a way to add light... My girls are 2 & 6.... sometimes a little light in the back is good.

Re: would like more light in the rear for my girls

My sel has an interior light w/map lights in the back (just like the front).I've also got the moon & tune package. I didn't realize it at the time, but maybe it's only on the sel's. Shouldn't be that hard to install, you'd just take down the headliner and run wires from your front interior light to the "new" light (I think). Good luck!

Sorry about the crappy pictures. If you want, I can take some in the daylight. P.S. The doors were open when these pics were taken (obviously). I didn't click on the map/reading lights on either side of the dome light, as you can see.

Great
Thanks for the shots... Now it looks like I either need to find on from Ford or a Salvage Yard...

Hmm, I have a 2006 SEL with moonroof and to my knowledge, I don't have those lights in the back :(

Maybe it was for 2007+?

By base '06 Milan has the same light assembly in the rear, so it is likely standard on all Milans. Very nice for my 6-year old. If you are searching for one in a salvage yard keep your eyes open for Milans as well.

V-Star - sounds like yours should have those lights on the back. If you don't, I'd take it back to the dealership and bitch at them until they do it. Print out KevJur's pictures and take 'em with you.

I too have an SE and they don't come with the lighting in the back, just the SEL's do, even though VStar ordered the ambiant lighting, the lights in the back is an SEL upgrade not part of the ambiant lighting package.

I think Fusion4u has it right - - rear dome lamp with moon roof on SEL's only. My new '08 SEL has it. Here is another pic showing the reading lamps on:

Re: would like more light in the rear for my girls

Early production '07 didn't have the rear lamp.

vstarbob: From the wiring schematic I have it appears that the wiring is there for the Lamp assembly even if you don't have the lamp. The only way to find out is to lower the headliner. Also if the wiring is there you would still have to modify the headliner to install the lamp.
