Hi,

My new Forte EX has the backlight for the power window switches. But I noticed that on the drivers panel with the 4 switches, only the drivers window switch is lit, and on the passenger side the single switch is backlit. None of the back door switches or the remaining 3 on the drivers side panel are lit. Is this how they were designed or are mine not working? Thanks for your input.

Has anyone been able to check, it's driving me nuts thinking they could be defective.

I really appreciate it. Thanks.

I know that all 4 of the backlit switches on my drivers door are on.
Not too sure of the other ones yet. Gotta get the wife in the back seat with me first!! :)

I think my dealer is lying to me. I asked and he said only the drivers window switch is backlit, not the other three. I also asked him to perform the TSB related to the fuel cap replacement, and they told me that issue was closed for my car's VIN. I told him how could it be closed, when it obiviously has the old fuel cap installed. Looks I will need to find an honest dealer repair shop.

I bet they kept all the new fuel caps that KMC sent them to sell to customers, instead of replacing them on their instock inventory.

This was discussed on kia-forums too.
It appears that the first run of Fortes only had the one light. The rest are blank.
Although, the schematics show that all are supposed to be lit.
