Q: AC lights dim

asked by on

My AC bulbs are dim, a couple of them are very dim, others start off dim, but slowly light up after driving a few miles.

My car has 7222 miles.

This is an issue that can often times happen after a vehicle is a few years old and can affect the climate control and/or the radio. Unfortunately the only way to resolve this issue would be to replace the climate control unit as the lights are LEDs and are not replaceable without replacing the entire unit.
