Some don't you know. Is there a switch to turn it on and off? Something like six screws and you can take it off and slide the wire and tiny bulb out to replace.

It's the same handle we had on our 2003 Fleetwood, which did light. I think it's one of those things that aren't connected on the Tour, like the generator hours on the dash computer.

My 2008 Tour does not light. I think that the Vectra did have one that lights up.

There was a previous post where someone replaced their handle with one that did light up and explained how they ran wires to it.

I think the 07 Tour is nearly identical to my 07 Ellipse and my door handle wasn't equipped with a light.... but I added one.

The handle is made of clear acrylic and lights up nicely. Remove the handle... install the proper bulb (I used a Monaco part)... drill a small hole through the wall behind the handle bracket... tie into the 12v lighter outlet at the copilot's right hand... and install a lighted rocker switch on that same console.

Works like a champ and costs about $15. An easy job once you get over the idea of drilling a hole in the side of your coach.

Good Luck...

Rick
