Just guessing but I'm thinking the dash gauge lights on an M450 "might be" fed from the multiplex system. If so, conventional dash light troubleshooting may not apply.

I was not sure at all about how the dash system comes into play with the multiplex stuff.
I was hoping they used a normal type of dash wiring and gauges etc.
But,that may be the new norm?

Thanks John, I contacted Chris at M&M RVelectronics and he advised that the dash lights are not controlled by the multiplex system. He also said that there are several 450s with this problem and they decided that it was not worth the time to investigate. Dan has a switch for the headlights and is shipping it out today so we will see.

I suppose he knows what he's talking about but the comment, "there are several 450s with this problem and they decided that it was not worth the time to investigate" would shake my confidence... it seems like dash gauge lights would be pretty important?

I don't have much "hands on" M450 experience (only Hish's old coach) but for what it's worth, it looks to me like the voltage for the dash gauge "dimmer" control comes from multiplex I/O module A2 in Zone A. (I think the A2 MUX Module has a fuse on it).

And sort it out he did. Thanks John! located that module and one of the fuses was bad. Replaced fuse and all is good. Owe you a dinner when we get back down to TGO. This again proves the power of this forum. Again thanks John….
By the way for other 450 owners that module is in the compartment under the drivers seat, above the compressor, fuse is on the lower row all the way to the right. Module A2.
