I have a 98 328i and wonder if the light switch on the dash that controls the head lamps and parking lights is supposed to illuminate like the rest of the dash controls? I have never seen that switch illuminated and it seems a little unusual that BMW would leave that side of the dash so dark at night.

The headlight switch has a light bulb. The bulb's out.

I wondered this, too, so I tore mine out and there was a bulb! Replaced it, and the whole thing lights up now.

Mine is out as well.
But how do you get to the bulb?

I never noticed.
At night time, I'd prefer to NOT have a ton of crap shining into my eyes, making my iris contract and prevent me from gathering in as much outside light as possible. I know the switch is there, It's really easy to tell what position it's in, and I don't really need to see the markings on it anymore either
