Re: The dash lighting went out and I fixed it this way

The bulb functions in place of the broken rheostat as a current limiting device with its filament resistance, except that it's non-adjustable. When the lights are turned on at night the bulb has only a fraction of battery voltage across its filament, so it only glows instead of shines at full power. Since the bulb is installed behind the panel piece, hardly any bit of light from the glow can be seen.
