    Bill, I already this one (fits over the headlights switch).
    I'm looking for one that fits over the Climate Controls on the Lariat.

    I’m pretty sure it did. I’m going to be away for a while today but when I have some time tonight I’ll see if I can figure out who it was and look for the thread!

    So maybe I was just dreaming but I’m sure I saw someone put on Explorer chrome trim around the HVAC controls. I just looked through 25 pages after searching “Explorer” and I can’t find that thread anywhere!

    Mike I made the change a while back and about a month later the ambient light changed to blue and the heater controls also turned blue. Strange

    And if you watch, when the ambient lights are on in the door handle and you open the door the color changes to RED. Then back to the set color when the door closes.

    Several times the Heater/ac lights for fan and driver/Passenger temps lit up with red for plus and blue for minus but cant get it to stay on. Easy to see but goes away. Clearly computer controlled so should be a setting somewhere. Help

    my heater lights were always off. i run my dash lights dim for night vision issues (eyes adjusting)

    but i was playing around and dimmed them completely off, then back up and down again, and suddenly my heater controls were lit up.

    so now my controls have light.

    Are you saying by doing that you now have the heater control lights on with the headlights off? Does this reset after a key cycle?
