RE: AW: [DML] Bright Lights behind AC Control



  Is there not a "power" wire to the console lights?  That is the wire that is/was connected to the ignition switch. Turn the key on, the climate control panel lights up.  That is the wire the dealer moved to  the climate control panel dimmer switch on my car MANY moons ago.  Climate control panel lights go on with the headlights, brightness controlled  same as the instrument panel.   Ta- DAAA!    MUCH more efficient.       Drive Stainless    Robert VIN 6924
