Good evening,

Can anyone tell me if the handlebar controls (lights, horn cruise control etc) should light when you put the headlights on? the radio controls are illuminated but for some reason the handlebar switches do not, is this normal on the 1800 A2 2002?? can I do anything to rectify this, it would have to be very simple for me to try!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks very much Dave, that puts my mind at rest! I was thinking it might be a blown fuse or faulty wiring or god knows what!!
Cant quite understand why they dont light up though!!??

You have to open the switch up to get to the bulb Don. I seen the dealer wrench fixing that very problem last month.

As was stated earlier the lighted controls first started in the 04 & newer GW. You can purchase "Rivco" lighted overlays that work perfectly. I have an 03 GW & have used these for years. Do a search on RIVCO & you will find their product. Costs about $125. & to me is worth it.
