I know this is petty but we all have our little OCD issues. My 2022 Freightliner Cascadia here has this small issue that just irritates the hell out of me. One is in the sleeper and the other on the dash. The exact same lights but in a different order on each. Seems like it would be put in the same order on both panels. Anyone have it like this? I guess I'm gonna take one panel off and swap them so they match. I know its not THAT big a deal but dayummm. Hope this doesn't void my warranty. good-luck-2.gif rofl-2.gif

That is confusing! From a design consideration though, if the top photo is from the sleeper and bottom photo from the dash then:

Put the sleeper dome switch on left in sleeper to make it easier to find by feel in the dark when groggy waking up.

Put the dome switch on left on dash so easier to find when sitting up front in the dark.

This is the Engineer in me, but I didn’t design vehicles

That's a great thought, from an engineering standpoint. But no, the top photo is from the dash, and the bottom from the sleeper. My 2020 FL is the same way.

It boggles the noggin...

And of course the reasonable question is WHY? WHY would they purposely put them in a different order? Yes, it does boggle the mind. Its not even so much of an ocd thing, I just can't stand stupid. I don't like ignorance and things like this that defy logic and common sense. And engineers wonder why people hate them...lol..

I wondered if mine was the only one like this, like maybe a disgruntled employee was looking to screw with quality because he was mad but it sounds like they are all like this. Maddeningly crazy i tell ya!!

My thought was they should put them in exactly the same place on both of the panels so you don't have to remember the layout of each based on where you are in the truck.

I agree with ya! I was just trying to think of possible reasonings before I had all the info.
