My 7th gen sedan (EX-L) has red reflectors in the rear doors. They don't light up. And yeah the switches work, since opening the rears turns on the dome light.

My 2006 Owner's Manual (p.97) says they are lights however.

"Individual Interior Lights

The courtesy light in each door comes on when you open that door..."

(emphasis mine)

The front doors have courtesy lights. The rear is only a reflector. Don't really know why they did it that way, but sadly the rears do not light up.

what i did was swap them out for the same clear covers up front...will eventually put in lights in there but its a farther off project and makes it look much cleaner


also, when removing those covers, use a very thin flat head screwdriver, the four little tabs tend to break very easy

So just a poorly-written manual. Interesting, thanks guys.
how so? it never states "in all four doors" "all doors"

i did find it annoying when i saw it didn't light up but unless you got children running in and out of the back and you wanna make it as safe as possible, the rears are used far less than the fronts
