Q: Dashboard doesn't light up properly

asked by on

There is a problem with the dashboard light in my car. While I'm driving when it's dark outside, I'm not able to see the dash well, as it's not lit up sufficiently. I thought that the rheostat might be the problem. I checked it and it's working but can't get fully bright. I was thinking about installing LED in the dashboard, but I'm not sure if it would dim. What do you recommend I should do to solve this issue?

A: Hello there, thanks for writing in. Sounds ...

Hello there, thanks for writing in. Sounds like you have a few things going on with your 1993 Porsche 968. If the rheostat is working properly, then there could be a few other faults. If just a few lights are dim, then the bulbs may be failing in the cluster. If all of the lights are the same dim level, then there may be a wiring issue such as a poor connection or loose ground. Consider having a certified automotive technician, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose this fault and perform any repairs required.

If the old bulb wasn't burnt out by the ballast, the new ones shouldn't either. The most likely cause of your woes are the cheap bulbs. I would strongly suggest only purchasing name brand bulbs. They may be much more...
