Is your radio volume / power switch illiminated ?

My on off, volume knob for the radio is not illiminated when in fact all other switches are. Is your FP the same or do I have a fault ?

No it's not .. a couple of threads on this on the US forum .. for some people it seems to be a huge problem!

Personally i do not see it as an issue as i turn the volume up and down off the steering wheel controls anyway. :)

It's not a fault. It is just how they all are, who knows why? . . same in all JLR models I think, my old Evoque was certainly the same.

I agree that it perhaps ought to illuminate, ideally, but luckily it's actually very easy to find the radio on/off knob in the F-Pace in the dark because of the way the console around the knob is illuminated anyway.

Would expect anything different from Americans, bet they will be using this as a reason to reject their cars and probably win.lol

Thanks guys.........99.9% of the time I use the steering wheel switches but when you look at the dash, it looks strange that just one button is dark. Thanks again.

Would've been nice to have this. My issue is that the remote boot button has no light and in dark is completely impossible to find except by guess !

Intrigued to know when you find the need to press the remote boot release from inside the car. I don't think I've ever pressed it.
