    Default LCD display backlight

    Hi all

    A few times now when I've got into my car I've noticed that one side of the LCD backlight is dim. I give the dash a little tap and it comes back on. Do you think that the bulb(s) is/are on its way out? is it easy to replace? what sort of bulbs are they?

    Any info welcomed

    Cheers
    Pete

    Sound more like a bad connection really, it's rare for a bulb to be intermittant, they either work or they dont!!

    I am not sure how you would get at it to check but I am sure someone will be along soon to help!

    Contrary to what you'd expect, those bulbs go intermittently faulty quite often.

    I spent AAAAAGES diagnosing a problem like that the the dash lights on my vec b, before realising that the bulbs were dodgy. Replaced them and everything was fine.
