Default Steering wheel audio controls

Are there supposed to be any backlight behind these audio controls in 2004
accord coupe EX-L? They look odd at night when dashboard is lighted but
steering wheel is pitch black...

You should know where the buttons are located without having to divert your
eyes from the road. So it doesn't matter if they are lit or not.

Why would there be lights in those switches? There has never been
lights in the cruise control switches on the steering wheel.

It's a matter of learning which switch does what and then it's memory
from that point onward.

You must be an academician and/or a Democrat-- avoiding answering the
question that was asked while managing to inject some holier than thou,
condescending piety that overall is a put-down ;-)

Do you have lights in your light switches in your home? If not how do
you locate them when you need to turn the lights on in a room when it's
dark?

Nope.

Actually, yes, my light switches are lit. You can have the same after
a trip to Home Depot/Lowes. Right next to the illuminated light
switches you'll find an array of night lights. I wonder why they sell
those to families without young kids?

Do you ever lend your car to a friend? Ever drive someone else's car?
Ever switch cars with your wife? Maybe there's a reason why other
manufacturers manage to illuminate these controls. Face it, Honda is
just cutting corners. Like their inability to equip the Accord EX with
a power passenger seat.

I agree with you on the lighted controls issue - but I hate the power seat
in my 02 Accord. I'd love to find a junked car and take the seat... except
mine are leather - so I guess I'm limited to passenger side seats and the
side airbag would be an "issue"...

Thanks. I was hoping I have some blown fuse or something...
But if this is once again cutting corners, than I have to deal with it.

Maybe in theory this sounds like a good idea...
But I see many cars having the illumination there and there is no problem.
