steering wheel controls

Post by JayBee » Tue Oct 01, 2019 3:24 pm

Hi All, Have only had my '17 Niro 2 for about 2 months now and recently drove down unlit roads in the dark for the first time. oooooooH
However, I noticed that none of the controls on the steering wheel seem to backlit, is that correct?
I am not likely to use cruise control on unlit roads, but adjusting the radio volume is probable. Not much of an issue, just wondered.
Can someone advise please? Ta.

Hi
I pretty sure the radio volume control on the steering wheel does not light up

I used to worry about this, but having had mine over a year now I can honestly say it doesn't matter at all. I know all the controls by touch and feel, and I can hear how loud the radio is when I turn it up or down.

Mine are lit up, but I don't know whether it's because I have a higher spec model. Is your instrument lights dimmer switch turned down?

Just checked the dimmer controls. They seemed to be a bit low, so moved them up to '10'. Will see how that goes. Tks all for your help
