Summit cup holder rings

I just picked up a '14 Summit and noticed that the front cup holder rings don't illuminate. The '14 Limited I drove around for about a week had the illuminated cup holder rings and while I didn't really care for it at first, I began to think that it was a nice interior touch.

Can someone confirm if these are supposed to illuminate in the Summit and if there's a quick fix?

thanks guys!!

Could be a rolling change. It's pretty common to start decontenting vehicles after they are released. I had a VW and a Mazda and both started removing interior lighting during production.

Make sure the rheostat to the lower left of the steering wheel is in the proper position. There are 2 fixed positions and one of them disables the internal ambient lights.

Re: Summit cup holder rings

Probably just a wire connector that isn't plugged in under the console cover.
