Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).
Did you mean instrument cluster where the gauges are?
Are you planning to do the electrical diag to figure this out or take the car somewhere?
This is a concern occurring from within the instrument cluster. The cluster and the rest of the things in the car get illuminated for night driving with the headlights on from the same circuit. Since the other things are not affected that means the cluster has a circuit board short that is causing it to illuminate on its own.
Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris
Would the wire diagrams help so you can see how this circuit works or I can opt out and get you back on the waiting list to see if another wants to pick up this question.
