Weird Problem with panel lights
« on: March 16, 2012, 05:22:53 PM »
Weird problem started in the last two days. When I turn on my side lights the horizontal display panel with the clock and radio information details goes out, so in the dark you can’t see these details. Turn the lights off and this panel lights come on again, I’ve tried pressing the speedometer dim button and that is all working normally an has no effect on the problem.

Any ideas on this?

The interior lights dim when the side/headlights are on, thats normal. If its too dark, then check the dial over to the right of the wheel, that controls the brightness.

The buttons up on the speedo area are for the speedo dials only.

Sounds like you have dimmed the display lighs without knowing!
