You turned on the dimmer switch. It's the thumbwheel next to the DSC switch.

Old thread, I know. But I didnít want to create a new one.
Anyways, when I roll the dimmer switch I only get the white lights on the dash. Never the red option.
Any ideas?

Interesting problem.
There are a couple of transistors in that control, it may be funked.
Do you have the electrical diagrams?
I can email you a copy, p.m. me if you need.

Have you tried turning your headlights on?

I do not have the electrical diagrams for the car.
And yea, Iíve tried headlights on and off. The dim function works correctly when I roll the ****. Iím very familiar with RX8ís. When the ďclickĒ comes from the **** it turns white...right? I hear the click, but itís always white lighting on the dash.
