    2002 Zafira heater panel and radio panel dead - fuse????

    time ok

    My sisters 2002 Zafira is giving some trouble. The heating panel and the radio panel have no light coming through them. The radio station can be seen the in the electronic panel on top but not below.

    What fuse needs to be changed? Or is there a bigger problem?
    Ive changed fuse 21 and 34 but the problem hasnt been fixed.

    firstly check the dimmer wheel below the headlight switch

    its probably been knocked and when the lights are on - they are at their lowest dimming setting

    I dont have her car now but surely the main panel(speed and revs) would go down then. Thats still fully strong so doubt its the dimmer

    Depends what version of the display you have... the baseline TID (radio / clock / temp) just use twistlock bulbs, but the higher end MFD ones do use LED's IIRC.

    I am talking about the lower panel, the fella asked about both in the 1st post. Never had the top one out so can't comment on it
    Actively proving that post counts mean jack sh*t since 1971
