    I have recently replaced the anologue clock with the seven button clock and external temperature display. (I know it isn't really an OBC as such!) It all works except the display does not dim when the dimmer control is used and is actually quite bright and intrusive at night. The radio display, display for the digital heating control and all the panel lights including those for the clock and external temperature display all dim. Is the display for this unit dimmable or is my wiring amiss? Thanks in anticipation. supercass

    Looking at the schematic, it looks like a grey and red wire.
