The DH light on the panel is a notification light that you have reached the preset, by the pilot, Decision Height altitude on the radar altimeter. Normally set to about 150-50 feet above the ground(AGL). Used in conjunction with the CAT II, III ILS systems. Not useful for normal ILS be cause DH is measured above MSL for normal ILS and radar altitude is AGL. This light is also on the default Cessna Caravan. There is a knob or switch that allows you to set the value that the light illuminates. 🙂

In FS they really don't but in the real world they do. It has more to do with the regulations and the certification standards of the equipment than how they are flown. 🙂
