Re: Ambient / Mood lighting disappeared

Garage said today it was nothing to do with the updates. The problem all along is an MLL module that controls the lighting. They are faulty and mine is now dead. New one ordered but could take-up to 3 weeks to come.
Let you know in month or so if problem solved.

Re: Ambient / Mood lighting disappeared

Ballywings. Did you report the fault to your garage? Any success with them investigating. I just found out my garage has done nothing in 2 months. They haven't even got in touch with kia uk.. I did, and they weren't much use, they just brushed my complaint aside with a couldn't care less attitude. N...

Re: Ambient / Mood lighting disappeared
