    Gauge cluster on with parking lights

    Is there any way to set this to on? Taillights are on, DRLS and marker lights are on on this switch setting, so I call it parking lights.

    ^^^ With TBAx's forgiveness for stealing his thunder, one way of doing this is to goto the instrument module @ address hex17 and change ENG125906-ENG126396-Illumination_algorithm-Scale_switching_algorithm from parking light to lds (this directs the algorithm to be determined by the lds position - the rotary light switch, rather than the parking light function)

    Don.

    PS: can someone tell me why NAR cars don't have the dash lights illuminated with Parking lights only - is it meant to be a prompt for the driver to switch-on the headlights in your DoT rules? Down here, we don't seem to need this additional granny-prompt!

    As always you are bang on. I owe you big time! And yes, I’m guessing it’s more of a nanny thing, but that’s the way we are headed!
