I installed xenon/hid lights in my wife's '96 C280 Sport and now, when the lights are turned on, the digital portion of the gauge cluster loses its display (odometer, trip odometer, time, outside temp., etc.).
It does not return when the lights are turned off, you hve to shut the car down and restart to get it back.
Has anyone seen/heard of this before?
What causes it?
Is there a fix?
Thanks, Greg.

Me too

I have a similar problem. I just installed HID and whenever I first fire them up, my entire cluster goes dead for about a second but then its fine after that. I'm lost on where to search for a problem because I don't know why the lights would suck power from the cluster but nothing else.... :confused:
