I noticed the door sill plate on the driver's side no longer lights up. I'm assuming whatever type of bulb has gone out. Is it easy to get to in order to replace it? We have a 2012 model.

From what I've read on this forum, check for voltage. If it's getting power, the plate is defective. I suspect the dealer will just want to sell you a new sill plate, but if you were determined I'd think you could repair that sill somehow. Maybe searching on ebay for the sill plate would give you a clue as to whether the LED/bulb is a replaceable item.

Not sure if this is any help, but figure any reply is better than no reply.

the easiest no-technical way to do this is to take the good one and plug it into the connector on the bad side, if it lights up its the bulb if it does not then you have a wiring problem, i would imagine the led's are not easily replaced, may have to spring for as new set of plates?

Thank you, but I got it figured. Doesn't work if you only open the passenger side. I've only had this car for a couple of days.

No kidding? Heck, now I'm going to have to go try that.....

One thing I did notice today was with the door open the sill faded out before the interior lights dimmed. Normal too?

Yep, same here. Pass door open, no pass sill light. Drivers door open first, pass sill lights up when door is opened. Close drivers door, pass sill remains lit. No wonder people think these things aren't working right. Anybody else thankful for this forum? If I hadn't found this place might hot have even bought one of these.
