Default Mystery Lamps!

Hi, folks!

I was putting my sunshield up in my #9 Silver Prius this afternoon, and I noticed two interior lamps. They're like "dome lights", and there's one above each front-seat passenger's visor. When the visors are "retracted" (flipped up so as not to block out sun), these lamps are hidden, hence, my late discovery of them.

Each lamp has a switch with an on/off position, but they don't seem to do anything, neither when the car is in "ready," "ig", or powered down. It's very strange, these two non-functioning lights. I wonder, am I turnning on a light someplace in an alternate universe?

Does anybody know anything about these lights? Thanks!

Bif, those lights are for when you are touching up your make-up, or as we used to say long ago, powdering your nose.
They do work. Slide the switch to the on position, then slide the mirror door open. The light should come on.
