Looks like they removed the thumbwheel from the 2023 model year cars. Have you looked under the footwell area to see if there lights are there. I'm wondering if they have removed the lights from the 2023 model year cars?
Just had a look, they're definitely there. I can't see any others despite what the standard spec says on the website though.

Any non-plus car owners with the 2.4 workshop only update, has this version fixed the footwell lights?

I've read a post in the 2.4 discussion where a forum member posted details of the Volvo C40 Recharge 2.4 update, it mentions minor improvements to interior lighting. I'm not sure if the Volvo C40 were ever impacted with footwell lights issues from 2.1 OTA like the polestar.

No 2.4 didn't fix the footwell lights yet. But at least enjoying the rear light animation that you normally only get with the Pilot Pack :cool:

My footwell lights are still dark as well. Shop installed 2.4 a week ago.

So what is it with the now free rear light animations? That was a major decision point for me to buy the pilot pack :)
I guess we now wait for 2.5 to see if this version gets the foot well lights to switch back on....

I have the MY22 no Plus pack, I do have the Pilot pack.
Cars without the plus pack doesn't have the central console lights nor door bin lights.

But your car should have the front foot well lights. These stopped working since OTA software version 2.1.

This is a photo of my car interior a couple of months after it was delivered in October 2021. There's no ambient lights in the dash, center console (gear selector) or in the phone charging pad area. But you can see the footwell lights working.

Everything you have missing, the centre console surround lighting, the door bin lighting and the dash strip lighting are standard features. You didn’t need a pack to get them. However, without the pack they should be mid-level lighting. You should have under door puddle lights too. Check the standard features list unter interior lighting. This is the quote,

“As well as front and rear general lighting and reading lamps, lights are integrated into the handles. When the front door is opened, the area underneath is illuminated, as well as the floor by the front seats. The distinctive area housing the equally distinctive gear-shifter is illuminated at all times.”

Before I purchased the car, I visited the space at Milton Keynes. I enquired about the difference in base Vs Plus pack.
So when I purchased the car I knew it would not come with lighting surrounding the black drive selector, no door bin lights, no lights for the mobile charger pad area and no lights cross the passenger dash area.

In regards to the following:
“As well as front and rear general lighting and reading lamps, lights are integrated into the handles. When the front door is opened, the area underneath is illuminated, as well as the floor by the front seats. The distinctive area housing the equally distinctive gear-shifter is illuminated at all times.”

Reading lamps yes agreed

Lights installed in the external door handles agreed. When unlocking the door at night the light emitted from the lights installed in the door handles illustrates the area beneath the door. This does not mean it refers to the puddle lights fitted to the Plus pack cars which have additional lights installed under the front door frame.

Front foot well lights, yes I have this but stopped working with OTA 2.1. still waiting for a fix.

Lastly "The distinctive area housing the equally distinctive gear-shifter is illuminated at all times". This does not refer to the lights around the glossy black panel housing the drive selector. It mentions the drive selector itself i.e. the polestar logo is illuminated.

I only have the pilot pack, for me I don't consider any missing lights. Only wish the foot well lights are fix by the next OTA.
