Q: dim message center

asked by on

message center is dim, can barely read it

My car has 161000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If the message center is dim and that is all, it is likely that the message center itself is failing. I would recommend having the message center inspected by a qualified professional to determine if it has power going to it. If the message center is recieving proper voltage from the battery but will not properly illuminate, it is likely that the message center screen is beginning to fail. If this is the case, I would recommend having the message center replaced.
