I just picked up an SX-P and am loving it. I noticed while driving last night that the buttons on the ceiling near the map lamps didn’t seem to be illuminated. Is this true for other Carnivals? It seems silly that the buttons for the map lamps and room lamps are not lit up so that you could turn them on in the dark.

Well, I just tried out my SXP and no lit buttons. Even hit the UVO button by mistake. You are right, they should light up.

If the SX-P doesn't have a feature, then it's highly unlikely any other trim does (wireless Android Auto being the exception).

I was wondering the same in my EX. These buttons should illuminate similar to the rear climate controls. Thanks for the confirmation.

You have to press the actual light

This seems so crazy. The power doors and tailgate buttons should be up there so both driver snd passenger can access. Another strange oversight. Our SXL has everything up there illuminated. You just press the map lights themselves to turn on. Seems strange to take that functionality away

Does anyone know what purpose the 3 little lights are on the ceiling serve? There are 3 in the 3rd row and another 3 in the middle rows. They don't seem to ever illuminate??

It’s a safety thing.
It seems possible but the passenger airbag status light is up there too and that does illuminate.

Our other car (not a Kia) has also has illuminated buttons in the same location.

I’m hoping that something was left unplugged but unfortunately that doesn’t appear to be the case.

I was also surprised that the buttons for the map light, UVO, and sunroof do not light up at night on my SX-P. Glad to know it's not just me (although I wish it was so then it could be fixed). I have it in for service right now and the service rep is looking into whether it is supposed to light up or not. Even he thought it should, and the sales guys aren't sure either because the car is so new. I'm sad to read here it's just an oversight/design decision by Kia. Bummer.
