Hello I found a solution that works..
The problem lies with a thin strip of plastic in the card reader. This strip of plastic pushes against a tiny microswitch on the pcb when the card is pushed into the card reader. Without it you will have no dimming lights.
As a temporary solution it is possible to super glue the part back in place.
Here's the how to with pictures + video dudes !!
Remove ashtray assembly - video broadband 3.5mb approx
Remove card reader and locate block connector - video broadband 4.5mb approx
At this point my camera get low on juice so I opt for pictures..Ho hum !!
When removing the outer case do it over a piece of newspaper as you will need to catch the plastic piece that will fall out !!
Now ( carefully ) remove the PCB from the card hold assembly.
You should now have two seperate parts thus..
Aforementioned plastic thingy needs to be ( carefully ) superglued back into place..
Heres a picture showing the effective but perhaps temporary fix.
Pop everything back into the car and hey presto you will have a working acesorie position for the card key but more importantly the interior lights will self dim again !! Wey hey !!
