digital dash

I have had the same problem...here is how to fix it:
Just get yourself a screwdriver and take off all the panels around it. From there you should be able to see behind the display a little. If you carefully, and I mean carefully bend the display down just a tad you should be able to reach inside and pull out the bad bulb....yep thats all it is. A light bulb.
Hope that helps a little.

expensive?

Well I am not sure what it would cost in Poland. In the states the bulb was only about $1.45 US.

Found the light

Thankyou rich88gta i found the bulb that was burnt out , put one thing do you know if PIAA makes a bulb for that because i put a PIAA bulb in to my fog light's and holy shit are they ever a lot brighter then the original one's. I would highly recomend that all you guy's do the same thing. You won't be disapointed
