Hi all.

I have just purchased a 1996 NL Fairlane Ghia, there is no user manual with the car and I am wondering if someone can please tell me how to make the lighting brighter on the dash and computer controls e.g. Aircon?

They seem to be a little dark at the moment making it a little difficult to see the speedo on the dash and adjust the aircon and clock.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Other than the simpler view...on the side of the headlight switch is a lever that con trols the intensity of the lights and also clicks the roof light on...if not that then its into the circuits

Thanks Bruce. I am new to Ford after years of driving Holden.

Usually there is a switch or rolling switch to adjust the brightness on the dash. Did Ford not introduce these? The electronics for air conditioning, clock and trip/distance are still dull. Any ideas on what I can do?
