Its supposed to be faint. If your red overpowers it TOO MUCH, press the little button towards the top of the dash in.

There are 2 settings... blend and ULTRA BRIGHT.

Make sure that you don't have the daytime brightness button pushed in. It's on the left, opposite from the trip reset button on the dials. during the day, with no headlights on, you will cycle down through 5 shades of red. At night or daytime with the lights turned on, it will make it super bright or switch it to the dimmer on the lower left console.

At night, with lights on and the dimmer control set, you should see the blue just fine - the red should be the more obvious, but the blue will stick too.

Easy way to tell - go out and turn your lights on, if the red gauges do not dim at all, you have the switch set for daytime lighting - just punch it once.

no, punch it.

Of course, you have to get your fist behind the wheel and under the dash, between the gauges...

Of f%$k it... "press" the damn thing!

Although this is kinda the wrong thread for this discussion, we are thinking about doing some such thing. Not on AIM though.

So then move us, Mr. Moderator... :idea:
