The puddle lights are really cool. I have those on my Mustang ( projected mustang image) and they are really cool at night to see! as well as a functional benefit of lighting along the car at night.I love that! I haven't seen any images, but I also haven't really researched if the edge ST has them, what they looked like and if so if they were the same as or different. Any ideas?
I don't believe the Explorer lighting is considered as being an "approach lighting" feature as in the Lincolns. I believe more than the puddle lights come to life in the new Lincolns upon approach.Do you guys know if they classify it as "Approach Lighting". I had a MKC with "Approach Lighting" which of course meant as I walked towards it, the LIncoln Logo would shine on the ground etc. My Platinum F150 with all the bells and whistles it has, does not have the approach lighting or any cool shine on the ground outside the door logo.
Also the MKC had menu options to control the approach lighting. I went through all the menus in the ST I drove (it was daytime) and did not see any mention of a similar terminology.
The Welcome feature on the Aviator, which includes lowering the vehicle if equipped with dynamic handling along with approach lighting, will shut down after activating twice. It takes another ignition cycle before it works again. That keeps the battery load down.Yup... "Approach Lighting" you nailed it!!! And actually it probably resolves a engineering challenge. The 2015 MKC I had (along with lots of folks that had them) we had issues with dead batteries, or the vehicle going into battery save/shutdown mode as if you had the Key Fob in the house and the MKC was close enough in the garage... and lets say your body moving between where you keep the Fob and the vehicle was enough to make the car think it just saw the Fob come nearby.. boom the lighting would come on. Rinse and repeat over and over say on a long weekend of maybe not driving it.. and I would come out to a car that would not start. They seemed to have found a way to fix that though as my 2016 MKC never had the issue. I parked it in the same place in the garage and stored the Fob in the same basket in the house.
