Car dashboard light triggers migraine at night

I wanted to see if anyone else has had this problem and perhaps what they did to resolve it. I recently bought a new car, but didn’t know what the colour of the dashboard lights were until I already had it home for a few days since I don’t drive at night often. Unfortunately the lights are red. Really red! It instantly triggered my migraine and made driving impossible. I’ve tried calling the dealership but they say there is nothing they can do about the colour since it isn’t technically a defect.
Has anyone else stumbled into this issue and if so were you able to do something about it? Because other than just not driving at night, I don’t know what I can do. And I LOVE ❤️ my car otherwise, it’s just the dash lights….

  1. Hi @Kvetka77,
    I found this, but it will mean some work from you or a car savvy friend: As far as the bulbs, you should be able to get them from the parts dept at the dealership, and failing that, there are lots of compatible after-market parts on Amazon. Saying that, it may also be wise to check and see if that would affect your warranty. -Warmly, Donna (team member)

    1. Well now that's frustrating! I'm sorry you are going through this. I wonder if there is some sort of shield or film cover that is available to help diminish the lights?
      Whatever you find out, please come back and share!
