Went through an underpass earlier today and noted how the backlit dials turned off about 5 secs of being in the dark (with the lights off)

anyone know how to leave them on permanently?

I got my dealer to set mine as 'always on' before I collected my car.

Mine just has the needles lit. A total nonsense straight out of the factory....

If you go into "17 - Instruments" and then select "07 - Coding" the last digit controls the instrument lighting.

Mine has just needles lit (which I think is a 7). You can change the values from 0 to 9. I think 0-4 is for US and 5-9 EU.

The options are (I think) :
0/5 No Lighting
1/6 Back Lighting
2/7 Needles
3/8 Both
4/9 ?

I thought there was something wrong with my instrument cluster! Although my does it when going under thick coverage of trees!
