  1. Hey all, this is my first post in here. I did look at other posts before I posted thisone but noone else seems to have the same problem as me. I have had my Focus 1.8 Petrol for just over a year now. The problem i have is this: when its dark you turn on the lights, your dials get illuminated. Mine get illuminated but after a short while the backlight just dies, all other things work, rev counter, speedo, indicators and various other lights. its just the backlight that doesnt work. The first time it happened, i was confused so i whacked the top of the dash and the lights flickered but didnt stay on. Sometimes i can get home from work without the lights going out but then if i have to use the car again, the backlights dont come on. Its getting dark and i cant see what speed i'm doing, apart from assuming i cant see where the needle is. I'm going to try and take it out this week and see whether there are any loose connections behind, i hope this is the case. If anyone has any help for me i'd be greatful. thanks
