New 2016 Trax - Headlamp Indicator?

Howdy from Chicago!
Just got my new 2016 Trax LT yesterday,
I have a question.
When I turn the headlamp dial to parking lights, the little "bowtie" with 3 lines on each side shows up on the dash (same as the auto lamp). However, if I continue to turn to "headlamps", the headlights do go on, but there is no indicator on the dashboard for them? We have two other Chevy cars, and when you move all the way to headlamps, an indicator on the dash which looks like a small headlamp with 5 small lines to the left lights up on the dash. I do not have what. Am I missing something simple or is there an issue?

With only on accessories (car not started) my 2014 LT2 has the " lamps with three lines" on at every setting of the dial. If I rotate dial to far left " off /on" it tuns that symbol off or on each time I rotate to that far left. So, yes my car lights on indicator symbol does stay on at all settings unless I force it off by rotating to far left but, doing so again turns that symbol back on. Try turning dial to far left again to show symbol on the dash ? Does that then perhaps turn the auto on /off and that "lamp with three lines" only show up if in auto and when the headlights activated ? Maybe should read the manual too. LOL
