    Vent lighting

    A4 b6 2001

    recently had the interior vents wired up so that the controls/button light up( these are the ones that are used to shut and open the vent) unfortunatley they have stopped working,i stripped one vent to see if its a bulb or led,it was a led it lights up but it is very dim,all other stuff in the car works/lights and the ciggarett lighter works,the vent lights were wired up to the cig lighter lighting and that still works, any idea's or have the led's gone?

    LED's dont tend to break mate, unless you used the wrong voltage size LED's ie 3v in a 12v circuit.

    Can you measure the voltage? Sounds like the voltage has dropped. Is the circuit very loaded?
