In mk6 and mk7 Golfs, the instrument cluster illumination works like this;
  • good lighting conditions - instrumentation is illuminated
  • poor / dark lighting conditions - only the instrument needles are illuminated, until you switch your lights on
This is to prompt you to put your lights on in poor lighting conditions, or when the outside light fades, so you can still see your dashboard instrumentation.
