Blinking Interior ambient light

Post by fqviii »

Hello,

I have a flashing interior orange light whenever I turn sidelights or headlights on. Its an ambient light that illuminates the small storage area below the heating controls. It will illuminate dim but then flash on and off brighter at 1 second intervals as soon as I turn the exterior lights on, dims and stops flashing again when I turn them off.

All exterior lights are working, any thoughts on what it might be? It's rather annoying driving at night.

Thanks

Just to add, if I have the interior dashboarr light brightness on the lowest setting when exterior lights are on, the blinking stops (the light stays on solid), however as soon as I notch the brightness up it'll blink on full brightness).

It's certainly not designed to flash as that would be a distraction. I suspect it is failing or faulty.
