Mine doesn't have that either...which is annoying.Also if I am not mistaken, the Gen-1 EVSE chargers (maybe some of them) had an LED light on them so you could find the charge port in the dark.
I haven't had any issues since when I'm away from home there's always been a street light a block away. But I can situations where it would be useful in near pitch conditions.Yes, my OEM Charge Cord has that light, my Clipper Creek does not. I must admit it comes in handy sometimes.
If you are at all handy around cars, you can order it from shopchevyparts for about $130 (plus shipping, etc) and self-install it.
