    Sport and Winter Mode Selector Lights on Shifter

    Just wondering if the "S" sport button on top of the automatic shifter is supposed to be lit like the "W" Winter button. Mine doesn't look like it is on. Also, when I press W, winter mode comes up in the dash, however, sport mode doesn't and the button is not lit, although the sport mode IS working.

    Any ideas on the lights and indicators? FYI - I have done the DRL mod by removing the fuse.

    So it seems that SPORT is suppsed to show on the dash, but I dont see it. I also dont see the S lit up on the gear selector. However I feel the sport effect of the later shifts. Winter button is lit and operates as it should.

    Any ideas as to what to check with respect to the sport mode not showing up or the button not being lit?

    Do you also feel the change in the accelerator pedal? That should be very noticeable, even more so than the shifting.

    Only the light on the dash shows it is in Sport mode. The button on the shifter doesn't light up.

    I do feel the change in the accelerator, for sure. Its like an overall car mood change.

    UPDATE: I am now seeing the SPORT mode light up on the dash. The "S" on the shifter is still not lit at night, however. Does it have its own LED? It seems odd that the W for WINTER is lit, but not the "S" for SPORT. Oh well...

    The "S" does not have a light. It is the same as my 900 where only the W lights up and not the S. That baffled me as well. If you handy, I'm sure you could run some little LED there, but I don't think it would be worth the work.
