d5100 light meter in viewfinder/lcd not showing up in A/S/P modes

I've tried to figure out if this is normal. On my D5100 the + - meter shows up in Manual mode, but it won't show up in A/S/P on the LCD or in the viewfinder. I used to have a D3100 and i could have sworn the light meter + - showed up in those modes too. Sometimes it will show up for a moment in the other modes, but the whole thing meter blinks with no notch on the graph and then disappears.

Does anyone know what the issue is?

I'm pretty new to DSLRs, I've tried researching before I posted this, but I couldn't find much.

Thanks.
