Dashboard Illumination gone weird!
Recently my dashboard illumination has been acting a bit weird. With the ignition on, and my headlights and side lights off, everything is fine, the radio display and door/tyre display are illuminated as per normal.
HOWEVER, when I turn my headlights on, the full dashboard instantly lights up and then fades to almost being off within about a second, including the radio and door/tyre displays.
I can then be driving along and randomly the dashboard lights up to its normal itensity again and is usually fine for a while!
I have tried adjusting the illumination control to see if there was a bad contact, and tried a few enthusiastic taps and thumps at various points on the dash to see if there are any loose connections.
Anyone have any ideas?! I'm totally baffled other than coming to the conclusion the 'controller' for the dashboard lighting must be faulty and therefore in need of replacement.
