OK so now I need a way to fix what they screwed up someone said to add a light but the issue is the wiring and a doubt that anyone has needed to even look at this :roll:

and without a 2011 in Florida I guess is is dead before it even starts unless Ingineer has dismantled the glove box

Huh? Glove box light? I don't have one in my 2011 SL. I have a white plastic insert in that hole shown in the OP photo. Could it have been something that Nissan dropped post-tsunami? (Possibly a parts supply problem.) Does anybody with a VIN > 1000 have one?

No, no. I was not suggesting that a glove box light be added. I just offered a Rube Goldberg type solution to answer Boomer's question about the 2011 light turning off - use a photo electric cell and an outboard light. :roll:

I just checked my glove box and no light but it does have the cut-out hole. I'll mosey over to the dealer this Saturday and tell them that I found "a defect" and see what they say.

I have a glove box light - but it is only on if parking or headlights are on.

In addition, the second photo is the panel on the left inside the glove box it looked like it has a handle but there is a sticky type tape inside the handle any ideas

Yer great idea Im gonna do the same maybe if everyone who got a 2012 (and I am assuming none of us got the light we all take our motors back to the dealer and say it is missing a light (I give 1000 to 1 the dealer has no bloody idea) but they will need to contact somone at Nissan and we make a point :evil:
