Default Dim Digital Readout on 97 993 -- HELP

Hi --

I have a 97 993 Turbo, 14000 miles -- the digital readout (speed etc...) is there, just not as bright as it was a week ago.

Any thoughts on a fix?

Adjust the dimmer dial.

Certain sunglasses (polorized) also make this look dimmer at times.

this happened on my 964 tip, and it turned out there is a small bulb behind the display which had died. Replace that and it will be back to original brightness!

Blown bulb or transistor. Or both. See here:
