Default Heated Seats Button

I have a quick question?? I would have swore that my heated seat button use to light up. To be more specific the part with the on and off part with the picture of a seat. Right now the only thing lighting up is my high/low part. Is there someone that has an "05" Bonneville GXP that can look and let me know if it should be lighting up?? I am being told it doesn't but like I said I swore it use to.
Thanks so much!

Awesome!!! Thanks so much for the photograph. I had a remote start gone bad. When I got the car back those lights along with the bottom 1/2 of my radio lights & the whole middle section with the defrost and etc. were all not working. I was told that the heated seats button don't even light up. I told him with 99.9% certainty that I thought they lit up. Thanks I truly appreciate the picture!!!

not a problem. these as well as many other lights are known to go out over time however what you are describing sounds more like some one put power to ground on your interior light wires to make that many lights go out at once. all the bulbs are LED so they have to be desaudered and resaudered in and out to replace them. if they can't fix that i say make them replace everything with a light blown in it. they won't like the prices at all. that HVAC is around $350 the radio is around $800 and the seat buttons are a whopping $37 each

The guy told me that he thinks it was a coincidence and that my part just went bad today after they had my car. However, I went from zero issues to lights out in three separate panels. You can't tell me that'* a coincidence. Seeing as this was the 3rd time my car was back as they were unable to get my remote start to work properly. With that being said I know that there has been lots of wiring & rewiring done. Of course I am no expert and that'* why I am on here asking questions & not answering. I don't know anything about wiring but after some research on-line it seems that these issues can happen with faulty wiring on a remote start. I feel bad going back to them a 4th time but especially after you told me those prices I just can't feel bad. There'* just no way this wasn't their fault in some way. So far I paid $600.00 for a remote start and I am behind 3 trips there as it wasn't working and now in addition I am out all these lights. Thanks again so very much for your help!!!!!!
