    Re: Passenger Side Door Sill Plate Light

    Captain, my SRX is a 2012 Luxury Edition. Since it is not Base, should I be expecting that Passenger Side Sill Plate Light should illuminatie when the door is opened? I look forward to your reply and thanks.

    Re: Passenger Side Door Sill Plate Light

    Yes it should light up.
    FYI the Collections go as follows:
    Base -> Luxury -> (2010 has a Luxury/Performance before Performance) Performance -> Premium (2010 had a Premium Performance as well - 2.8T)
    When you turn your car on, does it return the favour? '14 Cadillac ATS Performance 3.6L AWD in Phantom Grey Metallic and Morello Red Interior -ARRIVED!!

    Re: Passenger Side Door Sill Plate Light

    I was curious after reading the above, so I experimented with my 2012 Luxury last night and this morning. The passenger-side sillplate light does NOT come on when only the passenger door is opened, regardless of the amount of external light. Both sill plate lights come on when the driver-side front door is opened. If the driver door is opened first, then closed, the interior lights remain on during the delay period. If you open the pasenger door, the sill plate light is on....but, of course, the other interior lights are still on as well.

    Hmm, no passenger sill light with just the passenger door? I'll have to go check mine again...

    Ok, my old '10, the Passenger side doesn't illuminate unless the driver's side has already opened; my '13 illuminates the passenger side upon door opening.

    Re: Passenger Side Door Sill Plate Light

    Ok...I understand all of this. In my case, the passenger side lights up, but the driver side does not. How do you repair this? Is it just a bulb? How is it replaced??

    Re: Passenger Side Door Sill Plate Light

    You have to find out what is damaged or non functioning in order to replace it. Which will take some electrical testing done at the source (sill plate). Maybe the door sensor isn't operating, or maybe you just need to change out the sill plate light?

    If someone has a drawing (Rippy? ) It's most likely push/pull clips. Everything is these days. Just have to find out what direction to pull (most likely straight up).
