Blue Glow Rings on Tach & Speedo?

Whats the deal with the blue glow rings around the tach and speedo? During the daytime they are somewhat visible as it gets darker out they become less visible and at night with the lights turned on they completely disappear on my rig.

Is this normal? Anyone else notice this on their SRT8's?

I want to see the blue glow ring at night is there a secret as to how this is controlled? The dimmer control on mine does not do anything to effect the blue glow rings?

Please tell me I'm stupid and missing something here!

Jay

Nope not missing anything, that is just the way it is. I know of no way to make them visible at night and haven't seen any pics that would lead me to believe it was possible.

Yah, they do not light up. Would be nice if they did.

But the blue wouldn't match the green ambient lights. Green ring maybe?

True that. Might be distracting at night unless you can dim them too.

Well that's too bad, no blue ambient at night, it's strange that in the manual the center console has a pic of the discontinued ambient light control button pictured, i wonder if the plug and play wiring is in place for the ambient lighting?
