    Prius Prime 2020: when I am in the garage of my building I cannot see the park button, or any button really. I need to turn on the cabin lights. Am I missing something?

    I only have had my car for 2 days.

    thank you
    Chris

    Luckily, you have XLE with auto headlight. If you set the headlight to AUTO and if your garage is dark enough, the car will turn on the headlight and dash will illuminate including the PARK button. Yeah, I have that same problem with my PRIME LE. The problem is that LE does not have the auto headlight, so if the headlight is off and I come to dark parking garage or other dark place, I can't see the PARK button. The fact that Toyota changed the interior color scheme on 2020 PRIME to eliminate the white accent shifter panel made the situation worse. With all black panel and black PARK button, un-illuminated PARK button in dark is almost impossible to see.

    after a few days you'll slowly get used to it.
    one of my complaints when i first got my car was that the homelink button wasn't illuminated.
