Car was absolutely but when i turned the engine off and on and the problem started. The instrument cluster is too dark, hard to see. Eveyrthing works fine but i can't see anything unil i look very closely. All the numbers and gears, mileages are there but too dark to see. I have private hire vehicle inspection booked for Friday early morning and I don't think they will pass me if inspector can't see gears selections..

Anyone know where do i start to investigate the issue?

Its vito tourer 2016 auto

Thanks for your reply. Is this expensive to buy? Does lcd panel mean the whole speedometer? Thanks

Are you sure there was no switch or dial to increase the brightness of the display in the car?

It unclips from the back but you may have to remove some other bits before you finally get at it.

Only so much the picture really did show it was pretty much gone completely now
Thanks.
Does that mean Mercedes will actually sell you just the little LCD display?

There is a switch to increase/decrease brightness howver it didn't make any difference on this occasion.

I think so, however I’m sure it’s an easy part to find on aliexpress or eBay
Yeah there is one seller selling it for around £70 but I have decided to wait and find used part in the UK which should be around £150.

I already broke the brightness dial when messing around with it thats why i don't want to replace the lcd.

Mercesdes only sell complete cluster
