Afternoon all,

On my CTR I have factory fitted foot well lights. Up until about a week ago they worked fine. Now they are very dim, and so is the little red light in the courtesy light.

When I turn the dimmer for the dash, the dash lights go up and down but the foot well and centre light just flicker and stay dim. Its as though the current to them has dropped but I have no idea whats happened.

Other than take it to Honda, any one got any advice on this.

Thanks

Mine were never very bright until I took them out and carefully drilled a hole through the blue plastic part that holds them in the dash panel.
that way you get all the output from the bulb going in the footwell and not being diffused by that blue piece.

But Teflon's were OK now they are not, so surely it's a problem other than the drilling of a hole will fix.

Already modded the holder. They where just right for me. But now they are barely light, as though they current has dropped.

Bad Earth???
