Hi Guys

I know this a real first world problem! But it is bugging the hell out of me :(

On my 8th Gen I lost the green dipped beam icon on my dashboard and it really annoyed me. (OCD I know!)

I have had my 9th Gen for 2 days and today the same thing has happened. I have the green side lights icon and the blue main beam, but no longer have green dipped beam icon. Both side and dipped green icons appeared before today, I think on any setting.

Does anyone have any idea why? It surely can't be coincidence can it? I don't think it would be a fuse as I imagine it is a printed circuit board.

As always, any advice will be greatly appreciated.

shaft.

You sure it has one? The Gen 8 doesn't have a specific dipped beam dashboard light, just a lights on(sidelights/dipped beam) light.

As above, there isn't one - Just a sidelight symbol; Odd I know.

If you want to be sure, grab a torch and look at the unlit cluster - You'll see no dip beam shape

Okay I am an idiot!

I was convinced that both my 8th Gen and this 9th Gen had a separate dipped icon. I've just checked the manual and you guys are of course correct.

I must have had my front fog lights on until today [smilie=hrmm.gif]

Das can you confirm that the 8th Gen front fog light icon is a solid green icon much like the blue full beam? Just to put me out of my misery you understand - a form of closure!

I come here to be educated :)

Yup the front fog light icon is a solid green one with the beams pointing down a bit just like the one in the picture.

I'm not scared Haltamer, it won't be the first lynch mob I've encountered. You should have seen the angry mob in our village when I proudly drove home in my 8th Gen :surprise:

Folks round 'ere don't trust transportation that doesn't have four legs :wink3:

Confirmation of my ongoing idiot status - thanks Das! It only bugged me for the last two years!!
