    Default Dash lights

    Hi there,

    Having a few issues with the lights on my dash, was wondering/hoping someone might have an idea why this is happening?

    When I turn my sidelights or dipped headlights on, my left indicator arrow plus my full beam lights on the dash glow, about 50% of the brightness of what they would if actually turned on.
    If I turn my front fog lights on, then the right indicator also starts to glow.

    Been doing it for quite a while now, but noticing it more with the darker evenings.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    PS. I have taken pics, how do I upload them?

    Going from Off, Lights on, Lights on plus fogs, Lights on plus fogs and main beam.

    Again, cheers

    Check the connections behind the dials it’s like a block with pins that connect to the back of the clock dials.

    Also check the connections behind the light switch same thing with the block of pins.

    Easy to access mate push the light switch dial knob in and turn. the whole unit will pop out to gain access may have to take the trim off first tho that surrounds it that just pops off to.

    The clock dials is easy to there’s a little screw under the wheel on casing also there’s 2 behind the wheel need to turn wheel to gain access there should be 2 little covers over the screws.

    Once done pop it all off and pull the flappy thing under the dials it’s a clip on thing and you should see the screws to undo to remove clocks then disconnect the electrical block with pins and check.

    Sounds complicated but should be video on YouTube mate an you’ll see it’s easy.

    Are all Exterior lights OK (lights glowing dim as on Dash ) or is this just an internal problem ??

    All lights are working perfectly fine, it's just the dash lights glowing dim.

    I know it sounds stupid but have you adjusted the brightness knob on the headlights switches
