Light question

Anyone know what to check about my lighting switch not lighting up at night? I know that sounds confusing but its the switch you use to turn your headlights on. Its not lighting up. Thanks!

I called a buddy and he said his light controls don't light up either? Is this normal? Am I chasing a rabbit trail here?

The switch in my 08 lights up. I am trying to remember if the switch in my 05 had back lighting.... I think I have a night time lit up interior pic of my 05. Let me see if I have it and if I can see the switch in the pic...


EDIT: I found the pic I thought I had, but you cannot see the light switch. Sorry... but I know my 08 lights up

Sorry read your post and thought you knew it lighted up. So yes my 06 f350 lights up. You can take out the switch and see if there is a bulb and if not you may have to replace the whole switch. Surely there is a bulb behind it though
