    Passenger Side Door Sill Plate Light

    On my 2012 SRX upon opening the front passenger side door the sill plate light of the Cadillac logo does not illuminate. I think it should and it does on a 2013 loaner that I borrowed. The dealer says that they think on the 2012's that it isn't suppose to light. I think that is garbage and that they just don't want to repair it.

    2012 SRX owners, I would appreciate it if, the next time you are near your car, you would open the front passenger side door to see if your door sill plate lights up.

    Thanks very much!

    Since posting this thread and reading the much appreciated replies, I can report the passenger side door sill plate logo light does not go on even in the dark.

    Nemosr, if you don't mind sending me an email with the last eight of your VIN, I can check my resources for any insight or confirmation! Email me anytime at Katie_Lucille@gmexpert.com, and I would be happy to investigate.

    Katie, twice I have attempted to send you emails with the last eight of my Vin and both times the emails were returned with "NO SUCH ADDRESS" messages. What should I try next? Thanks, Nemosr

    Nemosr, I'm terribly sorry but it appears I made a slight typo when I originally posted my email address. I apologize for the inconvenience, and I edited my post above to read the correct address (which is Katie_Lucille@gmexpert.com).

    My 2010 does NOT light up when the passenger door is opened first.
    If that is by design, it's dumb.

    I just checked my SRX's passenger door at 4:50 PM today and the Cadillac in the sill plate was illuminated, although you couldn't easily see it I had to put my hand over the top of it to see that indeed it was on... BTW: the driver's door was closed and yes the car was also off.

    Re: Passenger Side Door Sill Plate Light

    I just noticed a similar thing on my 2012 SRX and after finding this thread did a bit of testing.

    With the car in the garage:

    Driver's side always comes on when the door is opened.

    It seems that the Passenger side comes on depending on how much light is hitting the light sensor in the car (maybe the driver's side too as this wasn't exactly a scientific test).
    The Garage has no windows, but with the large Garage door open there was enough light getting to the sensor to stop the passenger sill plate from lighting. However, after closing the garage door, the passenger sill plate lit up.

    I have a 2012 Premium Trim SRX in case trim level matters (I don't think it does).

    I hope this helps,

    nemosr, any official word on the way it should work?

    I have a 2010 premium and it does illuminate. I also had a 2013 srx base model and did not illuminate. maybe it depends if you have a base model compared to a full option pkg..

    Base Collection's will not illuminate. Any Collection package up from a base will illuminate.
    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!!
