dash lights


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone can help me out.

i just put a cai in and i was wondering if i mucked up the dash lights.

when i turn the car on they are fine and really bright, but then when i turn the head lights on they go a bit dull.

just wondering if anyone else that has a 03 sportivo that does the same thing or if the lights just stay the same brightness.

thanks guys

When the headlights are on press the ODO needle reset meter thing until it comes to dashes.

looks like steps.... anyway hold on to this and it will scroll through the brightness levels.

Its a dim switch, however no mater how hard i looked, i couldn't find this in the book

Hey mate, its just reverted to the standard setting. it dims the dash lights when the headlights are on so it doesnt blind u at night - people prefer it that way.

its adjustable though - turn on your car, turn the headlights on. Press the odo button and scroll through the option - (Odo, Trip A, Trip B)

When the headlights are on, you get a 4th option which is dashes. this indicates the amount of light for the dash lights (less dashes, dimmer light) to adjust, hold the odo button in like if you were reseting the trip, and it will scroll through the different light options.
