Humm . . .
not sure that we are talking about the same thing?
I thought that Roman was referring to the lamp that (back)lights the right LCD window but it looks as though he was referring to lamp in the AUTO button.
On my car, the AUTO lamp is fine but have to 'tap' the LCD panel to get the LCD lamp to light. Sorry for confusion.
