    Interior overhead light and dashboard display problem

    Hi,

    I have recently bought used astra (W Reg, 1.6, 8v) and I am new to it, I am facing two problems

    1. I dont know from where can I turn on/off interior lights, the interior overhead light does not have any on off switch with it, i have also checked the manual

    2. second problem is with the dashboad display (including clock, and panel behind stearing wheel), which becomes very dim as soon as i turn on the car headlights, display is ok when the headlight are turned off

    please help

    regards
    Nitin

    As soon as your engine heats up and reaches it's optimum temperature your dials should become lighter. I have an SXI 1.6 16v and mine does the same until i give the car at little more revs. This only happens just after the car has started though, as soon as i've driven around a bit they're fine
