Yes, you can still see the time but it is very faint.

check the REAR park LMP fuse right IP junction box


check that there is power to both sides of this fuse with the key on (using atest light or meter)

let me know if there is power to both sides of the REAR PARK lmp fuse


and I will tell you what to check next

don't have a test light but the fuses look ok

your going to need a light or a meter


to check for power to both sides of that fuse if it doesnt have power its possibly the park lamp relay


if it does have power you need to check for power into the headlight switch on the Brown/White and power out of the Healdight Switch on the Gray with lights on.. (make sure dimmer is turned to full power)


if you have power into the headlight Switch on the Brown/White but not coming out on the Gray Replace the Headlight switch


you need a test light or meter to do these tests


if you can not perform these tests yourself it would run a max of 100 dollars for this type of diagnostic work
