Overland Backlighting
 
Hi,

Just wondering if you have lighting on the following. Overland here...

1. Windshield wiper controls.
2. Back door handles. Front driver and pass have them on mine.

Seems like everything is "backlit" except for these.

3. Also, does your Key have a control for the back window?

My overland is lit the same as you describe. I have no button for the back window on my key fob either. I think I read somewhere that the early production units had the window button on the fob, but it was dropped by about September production times.

I do wish the rear handles were backlit like the front. I can live without the window button on the fob.

I looked over and drove a very early Overland, and the key fob did have a button for the back window. But the sales guy couldn't get it to work.

Mine has the rear window button and was built mid September. Maybe the sales guy didn't push it twice, lol

I thought this was a late option and the newer ones didn't have the button?

Correct they got rid of the button, because people were hitting it and then the power liftgate wont open. I have it with an August build date and love it.

My Overland was built Sept. 28 and has the flipper glass button. I like having the option, but both my wife and I have pushed the wrong button by mistake a few times when really wanting to open the liftgate.

Thanks Parker.

Anyone else care to chime in on the lighting?

I can always chime in, just not on an overland. :) I have a limited. Same deal wiper controls and back door handles not lit but everything else is. The leds in the door panels up front and the one in the ceiling by the homelink unit that shines down on the center console is sweet. I do have the flipper glass button on my remote and love it.

Wiper controls will not be lit, almost in any vehicle unless they are on the dashboard, never heard of the a turn signal/wiper stalk being lit. Even in a s600. The rear door handles/pockets will not be lit, it's only the front that get this feature. Would be nice if the back did too, would look really nice.It's kinda like the old WK , the front got fake stitching and silver /wood on the doors, rear got shafted with nothing. However the WK2, the rear seats get the same nice doors etc., just not the LED's in the door handles.

As stated, some people weren't smart enough to realize there was 2 buttons for the rear of the GC, one for flipper window and one for the actual tailgate. Chrysler got tired of paying for people bringing their car in saying it wasn't working because of their stupidity, we now only have a liftgate button instead of both.
