Interior reading lights

On the upper panel that controls interior lighting on our 2014 GLK250, there are push switches on each side. The manual says they operate the left and right reading lamps. But so far as I can tell they do nothing.

Assuming the reading lamps are the ones under the visors, those lamps switch on and off when the visor mirrors are opened.

Anyone know if those reading lamp switches have any purpose?

The lamps are located on the underside of the rear view mirror. In daylight, you can't really see them on. At night, they work fine.

talking about those buttons, almost every time my wife goes to turn on the reading light, the MB embrace button gets pushed.

You're wife isn't the only one that's done that!
