Headlight switch backlight

Is there supposed to be a backlight for the headlight switch so that you can see it at night? I thought those controls used to be lit so that you could easily see the knob to turn on the headlights/parking lights/or auto function as well as the dimmer switch for the dash and interior lights. It is no longer illuminated and I asked about it at the dealership. First the guy said it doesn't light up, then checked and agreed I was right, but they had to order the part. They replaced the part yesterday and last night while driving, still no backlight on the switch. Am I remembering this incorrectly, or is it actually supposed to have a backlight at night?

Yup, it has a backlight. I'd guess it's a wiring problem, not the switch.

Don't you just love those dealer guys who's first reaction is always to tell the customer he is wrong!

Well I hate to say it but dealers are really just garages that pay Chrysler to sell and service their cars . Some are good and a vast majority are really just mediocre.
