Interior backlit switches


Hello team,

I've been through the forum and haven't found the info I need yet but I own a 2012 T31 Series 5 TL since I have a work vehicle I don't drive it much and only the wife does. After getting back in it and driving at night I realised that other than the auto button on drivers window controls we have no backlight on any buttons. Not even the hazard button. What should be backlit on my car and what fuse should control it because they all appear okay.

Thanks guys

Dave

Hi Dave,

Yes, that's correct. Only the Auto button is backlit on the driver's side door.

You can follow THIS Guide to enable the backlit on the steering wheel and the gear selector (if yours is automatic transmission).

Hi Dave,

I'm not sure if it can be done with the T31 if you are electronically handy or you know someone who is, but have a look at the thread Illuminated Window Switches - How?

Re: problem solved


Guys,

After being told this evening that I had no tail lights I went looking for the fuse for them. After finding and changing the fuse...... All switches in the trail are glowing again along with tail lights.

So it come to reason that:
1. Who in (insert personal daity) name, decided the series V x-trails needed 3 fuse boxes?
2. Australian delivered t31 series V TL have all switches backlit from factory and Nissan uses with backlit as a warning that you have no tail lights.
3. There can't be a good explanation for why this isn't listed in the owners manual.

Thank you to all that replied

Re:


I think only the main dash (centre console) switches share the same fuse line with the tail lights but your question was about the Auto button on the driver's side door, so that what got me confused because the door switches are not backlit.
