odometer on my 2007 Ford Taurus won't light up during the day and are very dim at night. I just bought this car and I don't know what to do? It's all digital .I need some help
there is no potentiometer? on the left side of the panel?..okay, menu, select, adjust lighting? guessing now but am sure that is something as simple as this if not offered a manual potentiometer on you left hand near your knee-
...also there may be a sensor on the back of your mirror that senses if it is daylight and is tryin to outsmart us, as modern electronics often will~
I also have a 2007 Taurus. My information panel/odometer lights began going dim just a few days ago. Today they were out completely. This doesn't affect any of the other lights...just the digital display. I hate the idea of having to take it to the dealer...they always seem to need me to spend a fortune. Any ideas?
...yes they've outsmarted us with the BCM (body control module)....responsible for dimming the lights, leaving them on after you've removed the key, everything body and lighting related- ....couldn't possibly be defective...consult your owner's manual on something like this~
piece of black electrical tape over the "daylight sensing" eye.~
Could be weak voltage....get a NEW battery and clean the 1/0 cable connection to the frame/ground with a wirebrush~ that will make it come alive (finally)~
