Ok so i'm driving to bludgers at the uni club on friday night right. I went over this speed bump at like 30 (They're those long flat ones near the Townsville uni campus that people go over at like 60 all the time) then all of a sudden, the backlight for my odometer turns off. I can still see the numbers but only during the day with sunlight on it. Does anyone know how to fix this?
