Do you have a dimmer for interior lamps? Like a rheostat, a little wheel that you turn up or down to brighten or dim interior lamps. Usually the instrument cluster lamps brighten and dim the same way.
Can you brighten and dim the other interior lamps?
not sure about that one but there is a dimmer wheel by the light switch. move it up and down to dim and brighten the dask lights/cluster. wheel may need replacing. also work the lights on and off switch manually to see if there every thing works smooth or hopes from dim to brite.
Your alternator may be going bad. Once the car is running, your battery has done its job and the alternator takes over. The alternator is responsible for firing the plugs, running your lights, your radio, your heater/AC, and anything else electrical, as well as keeping your battery charged. If the alternator is on its way out (or even has a less than good ground), you may experience some lights dimming, or even choppy radio signal. If the alternator is already gone, and your car is running off of the battery full time, you will also get the dimming you describe, and sooner or later the car will not even start. Take your car to an auto parts store (Advance, or Auto Zone, etc) and ask them to test your alternator. This is a free service.
You can use the following transformer as a replacement-
LET 60 class 2 12 V/60W lighting transformer from express lighting.com $18- slightly smaller
Had the same problem- customer service at home despit was underwhelming
as usual, they said that each manufacturer blamed the other, and to return it, they would not just replace the transformer. Typical of HD-you are pretty much on your own-lucky im an electrical engineer!-hope this helps
Get a test light,and ground the clip,put the tip of the test light on the dash light fuse.Turn the knob to dim,and brighten the dash lights,see if the test light reacts with the dimmer switch.If it does not,then there is a wire jumped to by pass the dash lights somewhere.If the test light dims,and brightens,then there is a wire of going to the dash,or bad connection where the harness clips into the dash.
This is caused by a faile color wheel sensor. This is like a strobe signal and the projector controls the lamp with this signal. When the sensor failed, you get random noise and the lamp control circuitary is going crazy. This is a known problem with the VP63XX series of projectors. I am factory trained and I can fix the problem for you. If you are very good with electronics, I can sell you the repair parts plus instruction.
