    Why don't they (the dealership) just call head office/Honda and ask?

    They said that they are doing that, but I want to make sure I have ample proof if the dealership wants to say that it is not supposed to work. That's why I'm looking for the pics.

    I know that techs are not yet trained on the 2018.

    Here's one of my Touring with the headlights on.

    Engine on, headlights off, with focus on the instrument cluster. The only thing visible on the steering wheel is the Honda logo, reflecting light from outside the car:

    Engine on, headlights on, with focus on the instrument cluster again. You can see the buttons on the steering wheel now glowing. They are not as bright as the LCD panel but that is to be expected:

    Same view, with focus on the steering wheel and longer exposure. All the buttons are clearly lit, and on the right hand side the climate control buttons/toggles are well lit as well.

    Thanks to that commented and especially those that took the time to take pictures.

    My car was at the dealership and after a few days they were able to determine that it was missing a harness connector. I'm not sure how that happened at production, but after a week at service, they were able to fix the issue.

    I guess it wasn't designed that way after all . Glad it they got it fixed.
