Door handle lights on base i3 not turning on

Just got a 2019 base i3 REX. I see the lens under the door handle but it won't turn on when unlocking or opening door. Is there no wiring or LED under that plastic lens? If so, how hard and expensive to retrofit? Is it something coding can turn on?

Which interior do you have? Only some of the interior packages included ambient lighting.

I'm not sure. I think it's the base. No blue cabin lighting either which I don't care about.

Same deal with me. Apparently, it's not included in the Value Package. I have the lenses too and I suspect there's a bulb in there also but missing the cable or software that activates it. A bit silly. I do wish I had light up door handles, but not gunna happen. Maybe it's a quick fix, but I don't think I'll find anyone who'd be able to spoon feed this to my non-electronics-knowing self.
