Default Steering wheel cruise control illuminted buttons?

See this discussed before but no answers. Should a 2006 T&C's cruise control buttons be illuminated when the headlights/dash lights are on?

this is a very common problem. From what I found 100% of all vans have this problem going back to 1991 when the cruise buttons were first put onto the steering wheel. As I stated, I investigated this problem and found there is no wiring provisions for this feature, there are no bulbs in the switches and the wiring schematics show nothing related to illumination. So I suspect that this is the problem why the lights don't work when they are not installed. I agree, I wish they had them because I always push the wrong buttons in the dark, I have to turn on the dome lights to see which of the buttons I need to push for the cruise to work, which inturn distracts me from focusing on my driving and I end up in the ditch or into oncomming traffic.

it's all a matter of money some years they will have bulbs in stuff like the speed control or the door lock switches and so on then half way through the year they will have the next batch of switches they order not to have them in there to save how ever much money they are for how ever millions they order. Same thing with vans they went from 8 way power seats to 4 way on the pass side or I replace a part like the door lock switch and the new one does not have the bulb in them ne more its not a matter or wires for the one little bulb a little currant over a led will work with no extra wires.
So some times U can get them with the lights in them and some times u dont get it.
