Display lights in AUII Faimont Ghia

Could anyone tell me how to change the lights behind the temperature / fuel / climate control display in the centre console of an AUII Fairmont Ghia or is this a dealer only fix type item.

Alternatively could someone direct me to any site that shows me how this is done.

Yes the light behind the LCD Displays. Ok during the day but a pain at night.

Re: Display lights in AUII Faimont Ghia

you can't really 'change' them as such, they're a sealed unit. whats wrong with them - i dont quite get what you want to do?

Re: Display lights in AUII Faimont Ghia

I have had this problem once before and there are lights behind the LCD displays that light up when the lights are on, backlights. One of the bulbs has blown and I can't see how to get to the bulb or change it.

Re: Display lights in AUII Faimont Ghia

ahhhhh ok, yeah i get what you mean now. its never happened in ours, but youre right - there's no real obvious way of getting into there to change it without taking most of the dash apart.

checked the manual? (i'm too lazy to go and get it to have a look).

Re: Display lights in AUII Faimont Ghia

On a largely unrelated note, a couple of the LCD thingyies appear to be busted on ours (it cant display the outdoor temperature quite right). Am I ain the same boat and cant fix it with out ripping the whole thing out?

Re: Display lights in AUII Faimont Ghia

if you mean that the digits arent displaying properly, the only fix is to get a completely new unit = warranty job, or very expensive exercise if it's out of warranty.

Different problem, if you are still under warranty it is a known issue and will be replaced no questions. Mine stoped displaying parts of characters and was replaced under warranty.

However, if you are out of warranty they will never have heard of it before, they will have to order in the parts etc. etc.
