Dashboard Backlight off
« on: September 17, 2023, 12:38:19 am »
Hi,
All lights work, dimm works, clock light, cigarret lighter works, but dashboard light does not switch on, at night when I switch the healights.
Where could be the problem?

Thanks

Likely the bulbs have gone!

Thanks a lot

So, if a take it out (the DASH), I should find the lights that have gone off.
They are exchangable, right?

I could not find no information in the haynes manual.
Thanks a lot

you have to tilt forward the dash pod - (speedo/clock/rev counter)  and the two bulbs are on the top edge

they just twist and pull out from the back of the dash pod
