Lights in the door handles - when do they come on?

Hi I just picked up the car this week and I am trying to understand why the lights in the door handles dont come on when I unlock the car at night. I presume this is when they are supposed to come on?

I have the ambient lighting option and can see the puddle lighting working just not the door handle lights????

Hurray I worked it out!

I have to press on the middle button over your head which switches the interior lights on. This also allows the lighting in the door handle to illuminate when unlocking the car.

Not in the manual! Which by the way is terrible.....despite it being an inch think!

I think the manual is pretty good. As long as the courtesy light is set to operate with the doors then the ambient lighting follows suit.

Once you click that interior middle button, it's not a problem.
