Instrument Panel Needles Burnt

Recommended Posts

When I first got my car I noticed tip of my needles (tach, speedometer) would blink. I thought that was intentional b/c it looked as if my rpms were too low or something :whistles: ... that is until it would stay off for a minute or two.

About a month later I realized how dim my headlights were and I guessed that if I turn down the brightness of my instrument panel it will make it easier to see the road b/c of less glare.

So I end up cranking that left knob near the panel and I lower the brightness and a few days later I noticed the needles were lit up fully.

I'm sorry if business on the needle repairs goes down. :ph34r: By the way I read on the needle repair website that the needles are composed of leds (light emitting diodes) and they burn out because they overheat. So I'm guessing if you turn down the voltage the leds won't overheat.
