    You can have needles and/or scales lit all the time if you want, though some cars don't allow both on at the same time, despite the coding.

    From Ross-Tech web site.....

    17-Instruments: K1 -- KWP-1281
    VCDS Works fine.
    Tweak:
    There are four lighting modes:
    Mode 0: Nothing lit until ext. light on
    Mode 1: Pointers lit all the time
    Mode 2: Scales lit all the time
    Mode 3: Pointers and Scales lit all the time

    Mode is changed in Adapation Channel 19.
    Standard value should be 11000 (or something close).
    The first (left-most) digit is the lighting mode.
