The dash on the switch **** doesn't light on the headlight switch, but it does on the 4x4 & hvac *****. It might be possible to drill out one of the other ***** to make the shaft fit the different **** to make the headlight switch light up, but it would be a bit of work.

An easier solution would be to drill a 3mm hole in the headlight switch **** for a 3mm led, wire it up with some flexible wire that taps into the regular illumination wiring.

It wouldn't be a dash, but even a 3mm circle would be better than nothing.

Old thread but this turned up as I was searching to see if anyone had modded the stock switch to light up.

I am going to mod the stock switch by drilling a small hole in it and then cutting some of the underside of the dash switch so that light will seep below the 3 circles. I have some fiber optic cable that I will use to then put into the switch and have an illuminated green circle /dot on the switch.

I'll post pictures once I'm done but should be kinda subtle but will look neat.

Here is an update for my LED in the headlight switch. Wasn't too hard to do either.

Looks good!
