Ambient lighting/theatrical lighting?

I just received my 2010 2LT\RS yesterday and am loving it, I am just curious about the ambient lighting. Is there a way to manually turn it on? Also isnt it supposed to run across the dash in addition to the door panels, I am only seeing the door panels light up, and how does it know to turn the ambient lighting on? Thanks for any and all assistance that can be provided.

It does not run across the dash, designed out by GM.

Others can chime in on how to turn it on off. I think they are on all the time when the lights are turned on.

the lighting across the dash did not make it to production models, and i believe it is turned on by your headlight switch, and can only be adjusted by the interior light dimmer knob

No it's only on doors wish it was across dash would look even sweeter! Not sure if turn on other than when they normally come on. Hope that helps a little. I'd say ownermanual might help on other question.

Can you find a way to change the lights on the guages and the doors to the orange from the blue ambient lights?

It's not a special edition option, but otherwise you're correct.

Thanks for all the input that was given you guys really know your stuff. I wish GM would have approved making the dash light up, but beggars cant be choosers, I cant complain, my Camaro is awesome! Thanks again.

Originally, they were, but the company that was building it had some issues, and there was a lot of controversy. Either GM could push back the release date to include the dash lighting or bring out the car much earlier without the dash lighting. They chose to bring out the car (probably because everyone was already foaming at the mouth for the last year+)

They are all a blue/aqua color unless you get the Inferno Orange interior.

Here are pics of mine with the IO Ambient Lighting.

Also worth noting, only cars destine to the US get the orange rings around the Tach and Speedo. Us here in Canada get blue.

Your dealer is wrong. You have to get the IO accent trim to get the orange lighting. It doesn't just automatically come one the IOM paint trim, it must be a added option.

The dash panels have the backing removed on the top lip for the ABL to shine through. So, it should be an easy install when someone comes out with the aftermaket ABL for the dash.

I popped off the small dash panel on the left of the steering wheel yesterday to install a GPS.

The orange looks great. I want to paint the interior panels but it looks like they are painted from the back side. I guess i can order the light kit from the parts dept.

So your saying that we could install our own lighting in the panel if we get the right lights and intensity?
