Vehicle is not equipped with control unit, data card confirms this since code 877 or 891 is not listed and 150 in diagram is grayed out. If steadfast on having ambient lighting feature various parts will need to be installed and coded - check with dealer.

I think maybe all you can see is the clear plastic light guides that run along wherever the ambient lighting is. These are not like LED strip lights with LEDs all along. No, there’s just a single LED at the end that illuminates the whole plastic light guide. Maybe that’s what not present in your vehicle. If so, you won’t get any ambient lighting even though you can “see” the ambient lights (which in reality, are just the guides).

Just a theory...

Attached some info to get a better understanding to attempt retrofit, ambiance illumination control unit is part # 2229001015. If possible, vehicle most likely will need to be coded using Xentry (MB diagnostics).
