    Are you doing the dash kit or floor well lighting?

    Re: CTS ambient lighting

    The under dash wiring for the floor ambient lighting was removed sometime during the 2010 model year run. My 2010 does not have it and none of the 2011s have it. Others have installed it by tapping into the dash ambient lighting harness but I'm not sure how that would work if you don't have that dash ambient lighting harness. It does require partial disassembly of the center console to get to the wires and the cutting and splicing of the same. There is some good info here:

    Also, type "ambient" into the search engine. There are pages of good info on this DIY project. Good luck! Jim

    I'm sure the ambient lighting was part of the main under dash wiring. So, I would guess no, it can't be added; at least not easily.

    does the ambient lighting come on when the headlights turn on? Or, does it only work when the dome light is pressed?
