Asked by Jul 12, 2016 at 08:51 PM about the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 75th Anniversary 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just bought a new 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and noticed the
knobs/controls and buttons on center panel located beneath the touchscreen
don't light up at night. Should they? Most controls are located on the
touchscreen anyway but seems odd these knobs/buttons wouldn't light up
when dark. Answer is hard to find.

These are the controls I'm referring to

Gary Trexler

What position is the Headlight switch in, is it in 'A' or 'O'? We noticed a similar issue and the headlight switch was set to 'O' which is off. We now keep it on 'A' for automatic and the climate control lights work at night.
