Hi Ron and Bresdogsr
I like the suggested solution you guys offered. Peel and stick LED's! Do they throw enough light to find stuff like the right tool etc. in the bays at night? Are they available at other than EBay? What about Wally World? I have a propensity forget and leave lights on especially when using the light at twilight when it is not so notable that they are on. Do these LED lights that you used have replaceable batteries?

You could install a contact switch so when the door is opened the light will come on. Then you would not have to worry about turning off the light and running the battery down.

Caper, how do you connect a contact switch up to those peel and stick LED's or are you referring to regular lights?

I'm sure he's referring to the regular lights. On my Georgetown I have a light in every compartment including the trunk and under the hood. They are controlled by two switches. Unfortunately they all come on if you turn on the 2 switches. Forget to turn them off and you have 13 lights on. I like the idea of a switch to turn on the individual compartment light instead of 6 or 7 others being on at the same time.

I find that they provide enough light. For $2 each if not put 2 in a bay. I have one in each bay and it is fine. Each unit is 3 LED's powered by 3 AAA batteries. I have seen pucks with more LED's as well, but more $. Meritline.com had some. Wal-Mart has them but they are $6 per one. Hope this helps you.

Thanks everyone for the info and feedback. I don't understand why NW Jeeper and CFSoistman ended up getting lights in their storage bays yet most of the rest of us did not. That is strange. Something like lighted storage bays seems to me like it should be a standard feature, not something you have to add after the fact.

It could be something they dropped after 2009? When we bought our 2007 Georgetown, they offered an XL-Package which included a bunch of additional items. I don't recall what was included but I know the spare tire was offered as well. The arctic pack was listed as a Forced Option, meaning you're getting it whether you want it or not. I thought option meant you had a choice? I have the XL-Package info at home. I'll look it up and see what was included in that package.

In the model refresh mid 2009 the XL package went away. The base model got many of the XL package options as standard but they trimmed some to keep the base price competitive and made some straight up options. The lights are one example of this.

WoW...I feel really fortunate...I have a 2003 325 and it has lights EVERYWHERE! Each compartment, each closet...I just took it for granted that they were standard equipment...
