    Ok so I tried a few LED solutions. They all worked well..................................for awhile. Since they are failing, I'm gonna punt and use the console button,,,,,until someone else has one operating for a while. 100 miles maybe....

    Yeah, still working on mine but my friend's MKC seems to over heat them but she drives the rush hour daily and parks outside in 100+ degree temps.
    Another option is to plug a usb wall charger and run the cord to the cup holder to plug your phone in.. I always plug my phone in the truck to keep it charged so might be what I end up doing if this is the case.

    Probably due to the fact the Glade plug ins need heat as part of the design.. a lot of the night lights are probably using very low quality LEDs which don't like heat.

    I noticed a setting in the pull down menu on my Lariat that switches off the auto stop/start. Unfortunately it reverts back to on when you cycle the ignition, just like the manual switch does. Since there is a pull down menu selection available, I am hoping Ford includes a driver selectable mode as part of a future software update.

    I would not expect a software update. If the start stop is non-latching (you have to select off each time the key cycled) the EPA fuel mileage is calculated with it on. If you can permanently disable it the EPA uses an average of on and off resulting in a reduced EPA mileage rating.
