    '10-'12 model years do NOT illuminate.

    They function as part of the entire tail light assembly if you will, but only in the aspect to provide addt'l reflectivity to autos approaching from the rear. Nothing more. Nothing less.

    2013 and up this changed, not only to LED, but additionally, the entire assembly is illuminated, including the inner set of the tails, located on the trunk lid itself.

    I was referring to 2013+. Not sure about 2010-12 but I am assuming they do not on bpd's post.

    This was bugging me, so I went into the garage to double check for myself, and YES! Lostneye is CORRECT!

    The reverse lights are located on the trunk lid (or inner set of the tails assemblies). See/Refer to the pic I just snapped.

    I incorrectly understood the OP's question to have been asking about the red portions of those inner tail assemblies. Those red areas alone, never lit up/or illuminated in the 10's-12's.

    Hope that's a lil clearer?[​IMG]
