ya it lights up.
there is a bulb behind the bezel. you have to take the bezel off and take the switch out of the bezel. then u should see the bulb.

I can't remember if mine does or not either...

Although I know when I'm in 4x4, a light shows up on the dash, that's all that matters to me really.

You'll have to replace the switch (bulb not sold seperately), unless you want to convert to LED.
