should steering wheel controls be illuminated?

Dumb question. Should the volume +/- and speed control buttons at either side of the horn pad be illuminated?

I went on a trip today and came home when it was dark. It was hard to turn on and set the speed control without illuminated buttons.

I figure they should be since my 1999 Ford Ranger has illuminated speed control buttons at the horn pad. You never know, though...

I'm answering my own question but according to a system schematic, yes, the audio ans speed controls on the steering wheel *should* be illuminated when the parking lamps or headlamps are turned on. Now to find out why this isn't working on my van...

It turns out that the illuminated controls *are* working on my van. I didn't realize this for 2 reasons: 1) they seem to be about half as bright as the other dash buttons and the overhead console buttons 2) my instrument panel lighting intensity was turned down to about half of max and that meant that the steering wheel buttons were barely illuminated.

Now I need to figure out whether the steering wheel controls should be the same brightness as the rest of the dash buttons.
