Hey guys, my EL Fairmont Ghia dash lights have gone very dim all a sudden, I can barely see them at night, they're just illuminated.

There seems to be no dark spots.

Is there a brightness nob anywhere?

Thanks much.

On the left hand side of the headlight switch... hold up to increase brightness, down to decrease.
The Fairmont/Fairlane are a variable brightness type as opposed to the Low/Mid spec 3 position one.

Ah yep, that little up/down switch on the side? I thought it just turned on the lower door lights etc?

Will try that tomorrow!

Thanks much.

That fixed the issue, LOL!

On another note, is the odometer supposed to light up at night? Because it doesn't, and I can barely see it during the day.

Also my climate control LCD light has blown, is it easy to replace?

Thanks much.
