Intermittent Dimming of Overhead Compass Module

3504 Views 7 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  aircooled
I read in posts from March that this is a common problem with TRegs (I have it -- my first "bug" after 1500+ miles!)

(For those who don't know about it: at night, the overhead compass backlight keeps switching from bright to dim at intermittent intervals.)

Have there been any solutions from VW since March?

This drove us crazy at first. A few trips at night gave us an excuse that saved our sanity:

We could be wrong, but my wife and I figured that ours brightens upon compass direction change (i.e. S to SE). Our normal state is dimmed according to the rest of the lighting.

Go try it.
