    Is this a common problem?

    Alright, one day when i turned on my headlights, the radio LED went out and the gauges didn't light up. The only thing that did was the steering wheel controls and the high beam light, skip shift light, etc. When turning off the headlights, the radio LED worked again.

    I took it by the jag dealer where i bought the car and they "fixed" it for free even though not technically under warranty.

    It worked for a couple weeks, then I needed a new clutch. When i finally got the car back again, the gauges had stopped working again. I have a feeling Jag just replaced the fuse or something.

    Is this a common problem? and what could be causing this?

    My '98 had the lights in the steering wheel go out, but not due to turning on or off anything else in the car. I just think it was 7 years wear on the bulbs that caused them to go out. I've never heard of this problem before, checking your fuses may not be a bad idea. Good luck!
