Speedo lights automatic or have i got a dodgy bulb?
« on: July 29, 2012, 07:15:17 pm »
Yesterday i had my lights turned on but it was still fairly light. As i was pulling up onto my drive i noticed that the lights on my speedo turned off.(it was just the numbers that was lit up).I thought i had imagined it but then they came back on. ??? It happend again.Then when i pulled up inside the dark garage the lights stayed on.When the speedo lights turned off, i got out the car to see if my main lights outside stayed on and they did.

So...has the a500 got some sort of automatic lights on the speedo that change depending on how bright it is inside the car?or have i got a bulb thats on its way out?

Thanks guys.
Now with added monza fun :P
