Dash lights dimming

My sister and I bought our Ď03í C230ís just a few days apart. For the most part she has had different issues than I have (and there have been many). Now she took herís in because the instrument panel lights were dimming. They had to replace the whole thing. I usually notice any changes with my car until this or it decided to happen to my car right after my sister's. Needless to say, my dash lights are dimming also.

Anyone else notice this? Is this a common problem with MBz? I canít believeÖ..after all the problems I still love driving my Benz

Dimming dash lights

Hi,

On my E Class I had to replace the attenuator switch. Have MB check yours too. It can be turned up brighter, clockwise. If it is still dim then the switch probably needs replacing.

This dimming is different than what you are referring to. Half of each corrector is dimmed sometimes and sometimes not.

Time to visit the dealer. You'll probably need a new cluster. VDO's quality certainly has gone downhill in their OEM applications.
