Alfa 159 instrument panel light dimmer

Hi all,

I'm having an issue and hopefully we can find some solution.

Menu and + & - buttons are not working at all, so I can't access the board computer settings and I can't change the intensity of dashboard lights. Dimmer is set to the lowest value, and I would like to set it on higher value. I have the full license of MES and I gave it a try today, but seems there is no a setting that would change the light dimmer value. Also, I was at the local dealer and they said they can't fix the stalk. The new one is so much expensive (around 500 euros) so I am trying to find a soulution here.

Thanks for any advice.

Dimming the instruments must be the only function that is not available with MES I think the only way forward is a new stalk cluster. Keep you eyes on ebay as they crop up once in a while. I recently changed my stalks as had the same issue as you and found a set on ebay for less than 75 and fitted myself. Its a fairly easy job and one for any home mechanic
