Hello,

Has anyone noticed that the Speedo dial light ,lights up when it feels like it?.

I noticed this when driving through the Hatfield Tunnel.

I don't mean when the main lights are on as this always lights the dial's.

I think this is  another UP querk,that VW might say it's a characteristic but i will be bring this up
at the next service.

There is a light sensor controlling that, just like the headlights when set to auto.

Hi,

My 2017 registered Up!behaves in exactly the same manner,so presumably this is as designed. I first noticed that the instrument lighting was present when the sidelights were selected in the early evening, but gradually dimmed until no longer lit. I was told that this was a safety feature to insure the headlights were selected rather than driving using sidelights alone.

Regards
Brian
