Default Lighting behind mirror controls

I find it amazing that when my drivving lights are on, there is no light behind the exterior mirror controls on the dashboard to the right of the sterring wheel when every other control switches have background lighting. I was advised this is standard on the NX GLS model - does the higher spec'd Exceed have such lighting? Or is there a way to get this set of controls lit?

Do you have lights where the door lock button and window up/downs are?

Wondering why that is a concern?

This was one of the gripes I listed when MMAL asked for a survey feedback on the new purchase. I'd like the light to find the mirror extension/retraction switch. Same with the window controls. There is only a lit bar on the drivers window control. I really find it hard to accept that these controls can't be lit in this day and age. My 13yo Golf has everything lit even all the controls on the steering wheel and it wasn't an optional extra either.


It's the little things like this that may save the manufacturer pennies per unit but I swear they're losing buckets of unit sales. Very hard to quantify any such loss though.

No light on the mirror controls on my NX GLS MY16.


I agree it is annoying.

There's no light behind my mirror controls, MY15 Exceed. Nor were there any on my last car, 2007 Navara ST-X. I've often wondered why. On the Navara, there was no place to retro-fit a light either.

Yes a large oversight IMHO.
Often at night I get back to the car and need to press the 'unfold' button.
Bloody stupid the controls are not lit.
I wonder if the design lends itself to putting bulb/s behind there or is the whole thing 'opaque' and not capable of being backlit?

Hi,
I put one of those small self adhesive cupboard door bumps just above the switch. The bump is about 5mm dia. and 2mm high. Makes it a little bit easier to find the switch in the dark. Very handy in underground car parks.

No current or recent Mitsubishi came with lit mirror controls. I believe older gen Pajeros did come with them but they were troublesome with lots of failures.


I don't often touch the mirror controls except when reverse parallel parking (to lower the left one) or to fold it in when pulling into a tight spot. All other times, I use the remote to fold it in and out.
