Anyone modded the lighting on the HVAC switches?

Recommended Posts

Common complaint:  The A/C, recirc and heated seats are impossible to tell if they are off or on unless it's pitch black inside the car.

 

I did a search, but couldn't find anything obvious to fix this. (Lots of stuff in the US about core bypass switches).

 

Age is getting the better of me, but I don't seem to have had this issue in my old S2 Exige, which I'm sure I'd remember (though I've had a K series'd Elise for a couple of years so my memory is definitely foggy, wasn't the old issue you couldn't see the switches in the dark?)

 

So I'm wondering if anyone has found a way to address the issue? Different colour LEDs for on, removing the lighting altogether when off, or something I haven't thought of.

I accidentally scratched a tiny bit of the snowflake off my a/c button, and can now see the light (just...).

Not ideal, I know.

@Rancid, lol, that's one technique I guess :D

Solution:

1) Copy the button layout onto a piece of paper and keep.

2) Scratch all button images off as per Rancids post.

3) Lights should be visible.

4) Use paper button layton diagram to ensure correct button pressing.

 

There is no charge. You're welcome. :getmecoat:

Hmm, but what happens at night when I can't read the piece of paper?  
 
I might get really confused and keeping mixing up the drivers and passengers heated seats :P

Also what happens if you're caught reading a piece of paper while in control of a vehicle? They probably have an "awareness course" for that!

Goodness. That is what the bright interior light is for.

 

Do I have to explain everything? :D
