I’ve got two problems with ambient lighting, firstly it’s not remembering the last colour setting, if I set any colour it just goes back to blue, don’t know if this is normal.

Second problem is my passenger door one is not lighting up correctly, it’s as if it’s dimmer and patchy.
Just wondering if anyone else has the same ?

This is passenger side

And drivers side is perfect

I’ve got the annoying non-remeberance, too. Occurs on some other settings as well.

The ID3 remembers your settings for ambient lighting, no reason why the Born shouldn't - they're essentially the same car, No patchiness on either of our 2 ID3s for ambient lighting, i'd say you have a defective light for at least the patchiness.

Could it be that the Born has an ambient light setting it remembers for every drive mode/profile and when you are flitting between the modes the saved ambient profile is changing, or is it defaulting to a standard colour scheme common to all profiles? Or maybe Cupra have done a lazy port of the ID3's controlling software and its a glitch on the Cupra's hardware they didn't anticipate? Given the problems with the early iterations of the ID3 operating software before 2.3, i'd say its highly likely.

Yes there’s a few thing it forgets but the ambient is the most annoying, I’ve tried a few settings and yes it has different colour for drive modes red for sport and so on but it just defaults back to blue.
Just have to see if the next update fixes this 🤞🤞🤞

To retain the ambient light setting I wanted I double tapped the colour (blue) I wanted and this moved the icon along and had the tick over it. No problems since :D

Mine seems to remember if I use the person / custom setting mode but forgets other settings sometimes and goes back to custom.

Eventually it remembered the drive profile one I wanted and I think that was when I set timed climate from the app (god knows why though).

Is the ambient lighting on both door panels only is there supposed to be some in around the centre console area?
Thanks

Thanks I will have to take a look at mine. I noticed in the ambient light settings it looked like there was a second area other than the doors but could not see anything
