    As I'm still learning about the car ! noticed the steering wheel volume, cruise controls don't illuminate, does anyone know if this is right, the car is 2006 2.0 auto executive if that makes any difference!
    Cheers Pete

    Thanks for that mate, looks like I have a fault then! mine was first registered in april 2006 so wonder if that's maybe why they don't light up perhaps, being an earlier model than yours?

    If it's a Facelift then it should be the same, though I honestly can't remember how it was on my Pre-Facelift now.

    Do you have blue corners to your headlights? The full chrome front grill?

    yes it does mate, are these steering wheel control lights supposed to come on only when headlights are on and/or ignition on ?

    It's a Facelift then, and they only show when the headlights are on :Smile:

    Cheers for that mate, strange one as this morning, I tried exercising the main light switch and low and behold they came on would you believe! albeit a very dim greenish colour I guess so as not to be too intrusive when driving, so what's going on with the light switch I don't know, so will be keeping an eye on this and investigate further if they fail again. thanks again for your help on this mate.
    Cheers Pete

    It is a gentle light, mine are the same, but when driving in the dark, they are just right.
