Cluster & Radio Lights

My daughters 2006 diesel fortwo has an issue that I I don't know where to start looking.
The cluster/dash lights only come one once the brake pedal has been pressed.
Funny thing, radio lights are bright but dim when dash lights come on once brake pedal is pressed.
I saw a post somewhere that this issue is common on Canadian models...

Help!!!!!

Welcome to SCoA!

Since this is a 450 I'm guessing the folks on Club Smart Car will be able to help you out.

Shot in the dark, possible bad ground somewhere or SAM corrosion. But yeah, I'd definitely recommend Club Smart Car for this as well.

Thanks' I hope so, I have read that this issue has been seen before, however I can't find anything out there about a solution.
