Question
Hi, The level of illumination is very low on my 2004 car. When I adjust the rheostat to increase it the lights flicker or strobe.

I've changed the entire light switch panel with no result.

Answer
Hi Steve,

some even by-pass the rheostat, switch out blub for LED's.  

Here's a website forum with a lengthy thread on this very subject:

"Subject: insanely dim dash lights, can they be improved"

Others have removed and cleaned the bulbs and noted a difference.  Apparently they get black as they age.

Best of luck,

Land Rover Discovery. I've had most of the common mechanical failures, altenator, water leaks, wiper failure, door/hinge problems, roof rust, floor rust, loads of electrical problems. Remember, I'm not a dealer or a mechanic, just an owner like most of you.

Owner of a Discovery. I've had many mishaps with our Disco but I still like this vehicle. Talk to a fellow LR owner instead of a dealership rep. I'm not in this for the money. I'm just an owner who wants to help others.
