Title: no back lights to screens
Post by: 2355andrew on September 06, 2020, 11:42:33 PM
Hi guys bit of a random one.... a year ago my dash stopped working, gauges all stopped...now all three screens have no back lights, thats that climate, radio and milage screen. the first two still work and if i shine a light into them i can see the info on the screens just no main red/ orange writing. It comes and goes which is random. Almost like a relay kicking in and out. Any suggestions? TIA

On a galaxy of that age with can bus etc I would suspect a problem either with BCM or the bus line. Have you scanned for codes of BCM,HVAC,instruments etc?
Also might be worth disconnecting battery for half hour or so and see if that resolves it.
