:confused i had cause to take my obc ( 7 button )out so as to access wiring behind, on replacing it the display it is now so dim as to be almost unreadable.
I've checked the 2 bulbs on the rear of the display, and these appear to be working ok, so im at a loss as to what ive done to cause this. Anybody any ideas ? Any advice or suggestions gratefully accepted, many thanks

Hi Ronnie,
Thanks for the reply - yep just been down to check them and the bulbs again too, all in working order, I also checked as much as i could see of the circuit board and doesnt appear to be any damage. display is working correctly but very dim.:confused

Im an idiot
Pulled the obc out again this afternoon (or whatever the thing is called) and on second inspection - in somewhat better light - discovered the both pea bulbs on the rear HAD indeed blown. The annoying thing is i have lots of spare bulbs, but BMW in their wisdom, have made bulb holders that need the whole thing exchanging :mad - more expense. Ah well, at least i know whats wrong now - dohh !!!:sarcastic
