    Digital display fault.

    Afternoon all,

    I've been noticing a fault in my car. Basically the back lights behind my digital displays seem to come on and off randomly, although they're almost always on. This is referring to my odometer, cd player and climate control. When this happens they all act together.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Be worth checking the wiring at the boot hinge as this can give you spurious electrical issues.

    The wiring breaks and can short out against other wires.

    I could be wrong but does the hedgehog not give similar symptoms? I'm sure I read that somewhere!

    The hedgehog won't normally cause the odometer dash lights to come on.
