illumination

  1. Steering wheel buttons illumination

    Alfa Stelvio
    Is it correct on others cars, that all the text/graphics on the buttons on the steering wheel illuminate, except the text under both scroll wheels? Or is it just mine?
  2. Fuel Gauge Illumination

    Alfa Giulietta
    Tonight I was driving in the dark and I noticed the white light of the fuel gauge was out, however the needle is still illuminated in red, has anyone else had this and is it a diy fix?
  3. 159 cigarette lighter illumination live...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Replacing the centre consul as the cigarette lighter part is broken. Connected the new one up and the illumination doesn't work. Does anyone know where the illumination live comes from? I've checked the fuse and there is power to the cigarette lighter itself just not the illumination.

  7. Licence plate illumination fuse

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, do you know which fuse is used for number plate lights? I couldn't find it in manual or in any thread. My illumination stopped working, but there is no warning light on dashboard so I presume it is a fuse issue. Thanks
  8. ICS illumination?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I'm new to 166 ownership and have just got a replacement ICS to work, sort of! It's not fully pushed home yet and the heater control panel, fog light switches and hazzard warning switch have yet to be connected, but the radio works fine as do the selector controls and audio functions and trip...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Good Evening Everyone , I have noticed over the last few days that the radio control buttons on our GT have stopped lighting up , I am thinking this may be down to the wire strips inside the steering wheel , I had trouble with the horn some years back (ooh err mrs) maybe they use the same...
  10. Dial Illumination on 2007 Brera 2.4TDI

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    During daylight I have no dial illumination without turning the lights on. I have it on the centre display panel which has been set to maximum using the control lever on the left. Is there a fuse or rheostat which controls the dial illumination only ?

  12. GT: Seat Heater Illumination

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Are the switches to GT seat heaters supposed to illuminate when activated? Mine do not (though the heaters work just fine). If so can the bulb be replaced or would it mean a whole new switch?
  13. Dash Illumination

    Alfa Giulietta
    Has anybody else noticed that when you switch to 'D' the dash illumination fades completely black for a split second? Or is this just mine!?!? It doesn't do it when you switch back to 'N' or switch to 'A'...

  15. Heater controls illumination

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Ticking off the job on the Junior. I have no illumination to my (manual) heater control dials. Before I strip the panel out, can someone ad use whether there are replaceable lamps in there, or are they soldered to the boards like those of a 156? Also, if all are out (recirc button light...
  16. GT door unlock illumination

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Don't know if it's meant to be but is my door unlock button (one with the key on it) meant to glow orange when not used? I've never noticed it before but it seemed to stand out this morning. None of the other buttons around the hazard light button glow unless pressed.
  17. Dial Illumination

    Alfa Giulietta
    Is there a way too permanently illuminate the speed- and revdials? The indicators are always illuminated, but the dials itself only when the headlights are on. But in daylight when only the DRL's are on and the sun is low in the sky the dials are hard to read. Could this be modified by the...
  18. Giulietta Dashboard Illumination

    Alfa Giulietta
    I noticed tonight that one of the bulbs behind the speedo was flickering as though the bulb (led?) was about to go. Looks as though there must be a few behind there as only 1/3 of the speedo seemed to be really effected. Doubt it's fuse related as it would just go, right? Checked manual but...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, Just wondering about something. On the drivers door panel my front leccy window switches light up, but the rear switches don't. Are they supposed to? The cutoff button to stop the kids playing with the windows isn't pressed, by the way.
