Posts: 238 that's odd. I too have a slight problem with my instrument lights. They have always seemed a little too dim for my liking, even with the rheostat full up. I pulled the cluster out this afternoon with a view to relamping and cleaning the contacts. I found all the 1.2 w lamps working fine but the rheostat was not what I expected to see. I thought it might be the old wound wire resistor coil type I have seen in plenty of cars in the past but no, this was a tiny, solid state board and a very small microchip and the reset shaft passing through it ! What on earth is all that lot doing there, simply to dim a few lamps ? Clealy, I have no contacts to clean or lamps to replace as Jeff Lawrence rightly suggests in most cars, any ideas what might get these lamps back up bright ?
