I have a Jaguar X-Type, year 08. The oblong panel on the dash for the radio and clock does not illuminate with the lights on at night. The upper panel for interior and exterior temperatures does light up. Is there any cure for this apparent fault in the lower panel?

Hello and welcome to Just Answer

Sorry to say that the 'fix' is to replace the panel with new or a good used item

the lighting is provided by a backlit LED so there's no bulb to replace and its quite a common fault on the X types for these display to fail sometimes just the backlight , or even the whole thing packs up

so if it really bugs you then the best option is to replace with a known good used part

or replace the whole unit with an aftermarket stereo
