What happened to my dash lights?

On my 82 GL Hatch the dimmer knob would cause my dash to go off if I bumped it or moved it just a bit.
Try messing with the dash dimmer knob and see if you have dead spots on the switch? (or if the dash dimmer knob is adjusted all the way off )
Just a thought..

I had that problem once except they quit on me durring a drive at night... and freaked me out. I found that it was in fact one of my fuses that had blown.

hmm where's my test light haven't used it in so long.

by pass it, a fuse blows I think. I'll have to try it again. (could have been
related to my now technically unplugged cig lighter)
Another thing is, the feedback/feel of the dimmer switch feels different,
it used to have resistance, clicks, and an upper and lower edge stopping point
and now it kind of freewheels no resistance.
Hmm i wonder if the same one is in an imprezza i have access to. I'll have to check that out.

basically, i bypassed the dimmer portion & wired in some led's along the bottom of the dash panel - drilled small holes for the led housing to fit thru between the gauge faces and the clear outer cover - kind of ugly, but it worked. had always intended to "do it up" right, but never did get around to it.

and wiring in an LED, which i mounted by drilling a whole in the
bottom of the dashboard area, and put a small peice of tape over
the glass to keep ti from glaring at me..
Now i have a blue LED dash backlighs. it's kind of cool. I wanted red
but then it would have possible drowned out any red warning lights..
which remnds me, my CEL is on lol
