Re: Nissan leaf 2018 Does the door lock/unlock buttons (Inside) to open close has light ?

You can also turn off auto-lock, if you prefer. That way, the doors won't be locked when dropping someone off.

Good point :!: I think reprogramming the car would have solved all my issues as I really don't care whether the car locks itself or not when I take off.

But I do like the lighted switches :mrgreen:

Not that this directly helps w/Leaf drivers, but FWIW, despite all the (valid) criticism of the Bolt's interior, I can report that every single button and switch on the driver's side door is lit on my Bolt, including the power door and unlock buttons and all 4 power window controls.

So... I guess the GM bean counters didn't skimp there but Nissan's did?

Maybe the Nissan engineers feared that fully illuminated interior switches would be blamed for the car's less than stellar (so to speak) range.

As Leftie said, the only question is whether a 2018 uses the same part as a 201x.
Those missing lights have been bothering me since I first got the car. I used to think that maybe it was an early car problem, but I realized that it wasn't.

This post has me curious. I popped out my switches to get a look at the body and wiring. It does seem simple to replace. I looked through eBay for used parts matching the mentioned PN 254013TA5A and see that the the parts look like they will fit, and prices are reasonable. I'll do some more research, but I expect to buy a used part and see if it fits and works. I'll keep you posted.

The same non-lit buttons are on the 2017 Rogue I can confirm.

For those interested, the Altima switches do fit the '18. I did the swap on my SL without any issues.

Thanks. How high is the risk of damage? (My car is leased.)

On a 2017 the risk is minimal. Use a plastic knife or something to pry out the switch and then just unplug it and re-install the new one.

At least on Gen1 Leaf's the plastic piece in the arm rest that holds the switch pops out easily. IIRC there are 4 points that mate with the connecting piece. Just go around the top piece loosening them one by one until it is free. At that point, it is trivial to swap the switches.

I will probably do that before next Winter. I now drive much less after dark in the Summer than I used to...
