The HVAC lights on my 2008 Exige were working properly when I got the car in 2014 but around
2016 they slowly failed until all the lights were out. It happened incrementally until everything
on the panel went dark. It is a non-issue because I can adjust the knobs without looking. There are only three so
it's easy to remember.
The device that creates the illumination is very expensive to replace and I don't think it can be replaced alone
so a new panel must be purchased......that was what I recall from speaking with Lotus Garage.
The electric window button still illuminates. It must use a traditional LED. Maybe Lotus should have used LEDs
in the HVAC panel,,,,then this would not be an issue.
