2006 Mustang, Is there away to change my dash light colors?

2006, Is there away to change my dash light colors? A buddy of mine said he taught I could push a botton or something & change to a few different colors. Mine is blue right now. Is this true & if it is how do I change them?

To use the MyColor feature, you first press the Setup button until it says "Hold Reset to set MyColor" The instructions are pretty self explanatory from there.
It is in your manual.

pcfrisch gave you the good information, but only if your car has the optional interior upgrade package (or IUP). Cannot change the dash gauge colors (called MyColor gauges) without having the IUP option. And even then only the gauges will change colors; the radio and HVAC controls do not change colors.

I was going to mention the IUP option, but since he said his dash was blue, I figured he has the IUP option since stock is green.
Unless....someone changed out the led's to blue.

I was expecting a joke....

ok, sorry i just had to do that. do you have the mycolor? if you do, you have the 3 bottons , above the radio, on the left side. info/setup/reset, and you have the info center below the tach. if you have the mycolor, you have 125 colors to choose from

I know this is an old thread but maybe someone can help me out with this question. I have an 08 GT and was wondering if it is possible to have a ford dealer install the MyColor feature if my car didn't come with it
