I have a '20 Ecoboost 'vert, with the auto trans. The gear selector indicator lights show up in the instrument cluster, but the position (PRNDS) indicators next to the console selector lever are not illuminated. Is this normal? I just noticed this, as I haven't driven the car after dark very often.

I watched several "driving at night" YouTube videos, but never saw if those indicators were lit.

Thanks, guys. Seems an odd place to "de-content", but that's Ford, I guess.

For fun I went to the Ford.ca website and priced what my car would now be. I noted that the spare tire kit is no longer offered as an option. Guess that's more cost saving on their part, as they probably weren't getting enough uptake on it to warrant having the stock.

Yes, completely normal.

Seems logical to me.you can see what gear your in by just looking at your display that's in your line if site

Not me. I always look at the shift lever. Different strokes, eh?

I wonder how hard it would be to "retrofit" an 18+ with the illuminated readout in the console. I'd consider it...

My '19 401A isn't illuminated. It also only came with one horn, which was horrible.. i fixed that easily though.
