No, they do not (as standard) illuminate on any version of the Antara, in the UK.

Does anyone know if the wires are still there behind the door panel? Read one installation guide from those lights and they keep saying wires are there but hadn't got the time to check it.

Other members who have looked say that the wires are still there so it should be possible to fit new lights.

Was going to say mine do light up but as Grumps stated, looks like it was earlier models only, mine is the SE trim 1st gen Antara

Thread is getting old but I have a '13 SE Nav that has the red reflectors in the front doors that do not light up.

I would dearly love puddle lamps like the wife's Meriva. So if when I pry the reflectors off will I find wiring?

Why, because it's a bit rural here and some puddles can be ankle deep mud.

If the wiring is there and it is active (or can be enabled) then I shall pop down to see the dealership's parts chappie and find the correct lamp fitment.

I must advise (been there, done that) not to purchase/import direct from the far east except Japan because it will probably take 3 to 4 months to arrive, get stuck in customs, be cheap and nasty, be made of cheese, won't fit, won't work.

OTOH if there was a previous model lamp holder part that went under the reflector then it will still be available, and fit properly, as spares for repairs.
