    Dash lights have me stuffed

    I have a problem with my dash lights that is doing my head in. I've read through all the older threads and tried the suggestions to no success. So here goes...

    I have no dash illumination lights.
    All warning lights on the dash work.
    All interior lights work except for glove box light/switch
    All exterior lights work
    All fuses are ok including trailer plug fuse
    Have removed and cleaned up light switch stalk
    Have removed dash and tested lights themselves and they all work

    My next step is to fix the glove box light switch but doubt it will fix the dash problem.

    Has anyone else had this fault or does anyone know what wire colour us the power feed for the illumination lights

    Cheers

    Check if you get 12V against ground in C0230 pin 12 red/brown wire with lights switched on and if you do the problem is within the instrument pack... if no voltage there we'll speak then

    That's right and I always found it odd that LR thought the only time one would need to look in the glovebox was while one was driving!
