    Should all interior buttons illuminate?

    Should the buttons that turn on the interior lights illuminate? (The pair of buttons between the garage door buttons and the dome light buttons)



    It seems to me that the buttons for turning on the lights on the upper console should be illuminated.
    We took it to the service department and they said that those buttons are not supposed to light up.
    Would someone please check their SRX and let me know if that's the case? It's a 2011 Luxory, if it makes any difference.

    My 2 buttons for turning on the map lights are illuminated when lights are on. You should return to the dealer to have it fix !

    Same here. Maybe somebody with a 2011 could verify your year.

    On my 2010 SRX, the buttons controlling the interior lights DO NOT have back-lighting. However, they do on my 2014 SRX. It appears that this "feature" carried over to 2011, but was changed for the 2013+ models.

    2010 + 2011 didn't have illuminating map lights. 2012+ do.
    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!!

    It seems obscure to me that the only buttons not lit up at night are the ones that you would push to turn on the lights...

    Thanks to everyone who checked on this for me!

    I don't think that was cost cutting, mostly incompetence.

    I don't understand with today's LEDs why the stalks (for wiper controls, etc) don't illuminate. I have yet to drive a vehicle with illuminating stalk markings. It's VERY annoying when you're driving an unfamiliar vehicle (rental for example).
