    Default stoooopppid design.......

    Is it just me or are there other guys on here who think that the dashboard lights are designed wrong?
    I will explain more.... now that the dark evenings are upon us, you jump in your car crank your engine up, set off look at your ILLUMATED dashboard and think that your lights are already on, when possibly they could be actually off ! i can hear everybody shouting at the screen, saying that you should turn them on when you drive off, but we can all forget to do this, { street lights at night you can, still have good visibility with no headlights}
    The point im trying to make is if the dash lights didnít come on until you turn the lights on, because when you looked down and saw no dash lights this could be another failsafe reminder to switch them on!

    Vehicle : Saab

    Trim : 9-3 Vert

    Engine : 2.0

    Year : 2000

    Default

    Personally I have my interior lights set as low as possible when my lights are on, as I still miss the blank panel function from my saab. So seeing my dash light up like a christmass tree tells me my lights aren't on. The lack of a green light also tells me there not on.

    I think we should take your keys off you - just in case you hit one of us while you're trying to work it out............lol

    i driven away with just side lights on thinking dipped beams are on becuase street lights mean i cant tell difference anyway, only had my vec 2 weeks but i just changed to a different start up procdure so dont forget them, i do agree though it is slighty odd but never mind love my vec all the same

    Same here, (top right next to headlight switch) you'll get used to how bright the illumination is.

    The thing I don't particularily like is the headlamp light on the dash beimg obscured by the steering wheel....
