    The other night whilst driving my 03 plate accord tourer executive I noticed that my steering wheel control buttons weren't lit up and was wondering if they are meant to be lit when lights are switched on, sorry for the silly question but would rather they were working if they are designed to do so

    Mine do light up (54 registration).

    I recall this being discussed on another Accord forum. It seems that very early pre-facelift models don't while slightly later ones do, but the dividing line is very fuzzy. However I would expect an '03 model to not have illuminated steering wheel controls.

    I stand back and await disagreement!

    Mine is 54 as well, but no lights. Does the model matter. Mine is sports, so I have bright red light speedometer etc

    Yours is exactly the same model as mine, but perhaps yours was made earlier before being registered? You can tell from the VIN when the car was manufactured, there's a thread here on the forum about doing that. Mine was actually registered in January 2005.

    Mine was registered 25th march 2003, it looks as thought they should light up but I could be wrong like I say everythingelse lights up i.e. The window switches front & back, the heated seat switches etc
