    Yes they are meant to light up.

    Have you checked to see if the dimmer is set to full, because if you set it low they are hard to see and almost look as if they are off.

    iirc they only light up when the radio is in use as the power feed for the lights comes from the aerial circuit in the stereo.

    When in CD playback mode for instance they dont illuminate...

    Then again....I dont have steering controls so cant say for sure

    If they are Mk4 then they should illuminate when the lights are turned on.

    In my mk4 they did that, and also when i never used them as i never got the controls for the panasonic headunit

    As GB says these lights come on when the stereo's on reguardless of the lights being on

    Have you changed the headunit? If so did you connect the blue wire?

    Take the headunit out and make sure the blue wire from it is connected and nothing has been cut on the cars wiring behind there
