    The bulb may be working but the contacts to it could be a little dodgy, try wiggling it around a bit

    Cutting the red/white wire keeps the date showing when a aftermarket headunit is fitted

    red and yellow wires need switching to allow the HU to save settings such as date, radio stations, last cd position/track etc.

    Yes swapping the wires is needed to keep all the setting on the headunit it will still switch off the date on the MFD when the stereo's on
