Hi Mark,

 

Try the  fusebox in the boot - fuses   ----- F20, F27, and F33.

 

Other than that, a bad connection/earth could be the fault.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

was any binnacle non illuminated

Mine all light up.

 

Is there a possibility that the dimmer switch has a bad connection?

if somehow the binnacle light circuit was damaged would it stop centre consol lighting and would replacement binnacle make a difference
