This may be a silly question Mick but you do know that there is a dimmer control for the dash lights? And have you checked the bulbs?

the dimmer switches are problematic on these cars... try unplugging it under the dash and bypassing the dimmer at the plug

Also, when mine did that it was actually the fuse blowing... and that fuse also runs the rear lights (brake lights are separate, at least). Just sayin, might be worth a check, lol

hi m8 it was working b4 tim took the dash out to replace the speed sensor to fit the pwr steering & the dimmer switch still works cos it still controls the lights behind the heater controls! ps. its still running lean after tim fitted the turbo kit .

it needed modifying to fit my car due to the Elford turbo setup. I figured that if I've got to start modding it, I might as well do away with the steering box setup and do a fc subframe swap with a steering rack.... that's way in the future though..... it's easy to get caught up in a circle of modifications that mean your car is always off the road.... I just want a road going car that I can enjoy for a while rather than one that's in bits in the garage.... I'm done with that for a while.
