I'm having a weird problem with the lights in the center console.

- When blinkers are on, the LCD display in the gauges go off and on. Blinking oposite to the blinkers.

- If i put the dimmer all the way up the console lights go off. Only when all the way up. Otherwise they do dim in/out correctly.

- While driving the radio/ac leds dim or go out.

I guess i have a short, but where should i start looking to troubleshoot?
thanks

Sounds like a bad ground to the combo meter.

Your gauge cluster - speedo/tach/fuel/etc.... is referred to by Toyo as the Combination Meter.

Hmmm, interesting... as I have come up with a repair for the center console light dimming problem...

By doing that... you no longer have dimming control of the center console & radio. Did it effect any other dimming functions?
