Grrrr
That moment when you’ve put the dash all back together , stepped back and admired your work. Then , turn the heater blower on to it’s Second setting and the dash lights come on ! Turn it to full power and they turn off.
Blower motor has 3 settings, 1st and 3rd are fine, when it’s in the 2nd position I have dash lights too . Grrrrrrr
Very tempted to just leave it.
It took me ages to put the dash in , don’t really want to take it out again.

Would it be safe if I just left it ?
Only happens on the 2nd setting.

I’ve found it, I’ve found it . Eureka .

Note to self, don’t fit a mk1 heater knob into a mk2 . Yes it fits and it mostly works . But don’t .
