The fan dial lights up, as do the temp dial, the sliders, the interior of the ashtray, the glovebox, the captions on the active check panel when you press the button, and various parts of the headlight switch. On the headlight switch, the current setting is brighter than the others, thanks to a moving (and breakable) piece of plastic.

You say the fan dial is supposed to light up also?
Is this true. I thought I have all the lights working in my ride but I guess not. If someone can say for sure that the dial is lighted please speak up.
I am installing a new Blaupunkt radio tomorrow so I will also double check.

'87 535is that I thought glowed quite brightly...

Hey all!

Anybody know how the lights work in the sliding vent/fresh air levers? Also the lights for the fan/blower switch? Here's the deal...the fan dial has never lit up, but the three sliders and everything else did...until yesterday! Well, the only lights that went out are the top and middle slider lights, the bottom one still works. You know that little defrost diagram, still lit up! Temp. control dial, still lit up! Three dots next to the sliders, still lit up! So except for the bottom lever, and the other things mentioned, everything else is dead.

Any help would be appreciated! I know this is minor, but it would be nice to have the whole panel shining bright once again. I did notice some broken card-like connections in there...maybe these are the culprits. TIA!
