Odometer Light Not Switching Off

23 February 2014 - 07:44 PM

So I have recently noticed that the backlight for my Odometer (trip computer etc) screen does not turn off when I have the keys out of the ignition and lock the car. I wondered if anyone else has come across this? I'm a a little worried it could make the car a magnet in dark car parks etc. 


I have recently changed the light in my vanity light to an LED bank which I've noticed also doesn't turn off straight away but does eventually. Also it is on but dim when driving at night (much like an unintentional mood light) 


Could it be to do with this light? Is there a way to get it to work properly? 



What Brake Pads?

24 April 2013 - 08:21 PM



Im looking to replace my brake pads. looking online I'm seeing there are quite a few different makes etc. I wondered if anyone could tell me who is best to go with? I don't want to be spending loads of money but at the same time I'm not going to skimp seeing as brakes are pretty important!! :) 


Also where is best to buy them from? 


One more thing at the risk of sounding stupid is there any merit to doing all 4 of them at once or is it okay to say do just fronts first then a month later or something the rears? I'm pretty new to doing a lot of car maintenance myself but lately I'm very up for new challenges and saving money! 


Thanks in advance for any advice and help.
