Understanding ICON Pro Gauge Lighting

Control of the illumination of the ICON Pro RPM and Speedometer gauges is a complex system. The RPM gauge contains the settings; the path to them is:

NORMAL MODE --> Branch to EDIT MENU (by pushing MODE button for 1-second)

EDIT MENU --> Branch to DISPLAY MENU (by pushing MODE button for 1-second)

DISPLAY MENU:

Menu options:

---> LIGHTING

--> CONTRAST

---> # OF SCREENS

---> PAGE SETUP

---> DFLT SCREEN

---> AUTO SCROLL

---> SET UNITS

---> CLOCK
