Light-emitting diodes, or LEDs for short, are now used in many light sources. In contrast to the light bulb, they emit only little heat and are therefore considered to be very energy-saving. They are also indispensable in vehicle electronics. Where it shines and flashes, mainly LED lamps are used. Not only their efficiency, but also their low acquisition costs make them very attractive for the automotive industry.
Let there be light! Or not?
The displays installed in the instrument cluster are often illuminated with LEDs from the background so that everything is clearly visible even when driving at night. After all, it would be very annoying if you were stranded on a lonely country road one night, just because you didn't notice that your fuel is running out.
However, that could happen to you. Occasionally, such defective LED lamps appear in the speedometer. However, this does not necessarily have to be the fuel gauge or speedometer, but can also affect important warning signals located in the instrument cluster and illuminated from behind. You should therefore always check when starting the engine to make sure that all displays are really shown. If this is not the case, contact a professional speedometer repair shop if necessary.
