Hmmm Dash Backlight

I think last night was the first time I've driven the GTV in the dark and there is no backlight on the speedo, rev counter, temp/clock/petrol guages.

Had a quick search on here but not found anything except there may be a way to adjust the brightness??

I'm guessing/hoping it's a fuse, but which one do I check? Also is that fuse used for anything else, as everything else seems to function.

Can't be a bulb as they are so disparate??

Any other common things I should look for?

On the plus side, I managed to successfully negotiate 4 speed cameras, having no idea how fast I was going!

Re: Dash Backlight

I had exactly the same problem as you. Fortunately there was an easy fix; to the right of the rev counter is a small dial that controls the brightness of the instruments and somehow that had been set to the off position. A few turns of the dial later I had nice bright instruments.

Re: Dash Backlight

Well done that man! Fixed.

Why would you ever need an off position??

And why would you have a remote boot release in the glove box....

Nevermind, at least it's fixed. Thanks again.
