Yeah, just for some history... Their original sill backlights were electroluminescent panels and required high voltage inverters to make them work - that's what I have on my car. Unfortunately, those EL panels age quickly and the illumination starts to go blotchy or cut out completely. Mine have and there were a lot of others complaining about them here on the fora. Especially as WR didn't seem to stand behind them and did not offer to replace them after the original warranty expired.
So since then, they went to LED backlights (I believe) that don't require the inverters and (hopefully) have a longer life.
