This morning on my way to work, I was at a red light and I noticed the light for my odometer flickering slightly. Barely anything really, it wasnt turning off and on, just looked like was losing power for a couple seconds. Flickering is the best word that comes to mind. Anyway, is this nothing or is it a potential problem? It only happened twice for less than 2 seconds each time that I noticed.
Car is a 2006 WRX TR with just under 60k miles. No engine/power mods other than stage 1.
Well, I cant say that any of things were on, maybe the defroster but I thought I had turned it off by then... either way, if you say its just a common power sharing issue, I wont sweat it. Thanks!
Keep an eye on it. I *think* the backlight for the odometer is LED(s). They should last for a very long time without loss of brightness or failure, at least the standard, diffused type LEDs.
Bright colors such as blue, pure green and white will flicker first before failing entirely.
