Sorted the "steering pump leak" last weekend that turned out to be just a leaking resevoir at the seam...(round type). de-crimped it, crimped it back with plenty of RTV at the joint, all nice and dry now
Next on the list are: the usual oil pump seal thing and one CV joint, peasy, parts on the way.
Now then, the one thing that looks way more difficult to sort, (at least for me) is the missing back light in all the little dashboard buttons, i.e. A/C, heating, fog light, etc. Just bothersome at night when you need to press on them...
The instruments lights are fine BTW.
They were all functional some weeks ago, but not anymore.
I sure checked all the fuses in passenger and engine bays and all are OK. so not THAT simple...
Is there a relay that controls these to look for?
any other ideas?

doesnt seem to be more than a simple relay, just the location a bit elusive ?
is it next to the steering wheel in a 2nd gen leg?
sounds like i am going treasure hunting this weekend

not sure it means that it runs through the same module as the A/C, fog etc, but it might
a quick check revealed quite a few burned lamps in the push buttons, os better rule that out first.
