Anyone else got a dash light dimmer on their s1?

Recommended Posts

While repairing my wiring loom with the circuit diagram, I found that the diagram doesn't mention my dash light dimmer, and the few photos I have of other S1 dashes have on/off switches instead.

Any other S1 owners have a dimmer instead of a switch ?

I might be wrong but I think they have two controls. One is a two stage switch for the LEDs that back light the switches. The other is the dimmer for the speedo dial etc. Like I said been a while since I looked at this so I could be wrong.................

There is no back light to the switches on the S1's as far as I can tell. The old fashioned switches used aren't compatible.

Certainly of the few S1's I've seen, in addition to mine, all have the on/off and two stage dimmer as part of the "panel" switch. Completly pointless as the dim setting is pretty useless!

Federal S1s have the arrangement in your first photo. The knob controls the gauge lights and the switchgear lights together as one. Whenever you turn on the headlamps or parking lamps, the cluster lamps come on, and you can adjust their brightness from "good" down to "off".
