Default Does this bother you too?

Anyone else annoyed by this?? Whenever I turn my fog lamps on the indicator light on the instrument panel comes on with a BRIGHT green light. To me it is so bright that it becomes very distracting and annoying.[xx(] Trouble is you can't adjust the brightness either. If you turn down the dash lights this stupid fog lamp indicator light becomes even more distracting. Anyone have a cure for this - other than removing the bulb??[:I]

can't say that bothers me, but that may be because i have brighter more distracting interior lights than the fog light indicator

if i'm gonna bitch about anything, its gonna be the absense of a window washer fluid light.

I always have my fog lights on and hadn't really noticed, I probably will now.

Take a hole puncher, find some transparent vinyl in your choice of color, punch a "dot" and put the "dot" over the fog light indicator. If that doesn't dim it enough, put 2 dots on it.

Doesn't bother me, but it IS kind bright.

O.K., I'm glad it's not just me that has that problem. You would think that the little switch on the turn signal/headlight pod would dim that down as well as it does the clock and odometer lights. I think I'll try out what quicksilverdon has suggested and see if that helps.

Ive never had foglights before so I always have them on....

If that green light ISNT on, I notice

You could always buy my "SAKI GT CODE FIX" Its only 19.99. Not only can you cover the orange computer code light alowing you to safely run over 25psi w/o throwing a code, but you can use that same sticker to cover up any other annoying light on the dash!

What a deal! [:X][B)]
