    New Dahsboard + problem

    Hello

    I've been reading these forums for a year now and found loads of helpful information. This is my first ever post and it's a negative one (sorry).

    I own a silver MK4 Club 1999 without a rev meter (tacho), after reading few posts I've decided to pay a visit to my local scrappy and got a dashboard of an Astra Coupe which worked fine. Later that day (me being me) I decided to mess around with it and install some blue LEDs... The problem Im having is my brake light came on and stays on all the time (brake flued is fine). Another problem is the mileage bulb, it won't light up the mileage unless i put a blue 509t prism bulb and even then the bulb stays on when i turn the ignition off.

    Thanks in advance, hope someone can suggest something, that dash was pricey.

    Is it the handbrake light, or the actual brakelights. Either which way, check the switches. Handbrake switch is a little black one on the handle, under the gaitor. The brakelight one is on the pedal. I had the brakelights come on perminantly on my mk4.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
