How do I stop my MINI gauge lighting from blinking?

Problem: SCX stepper motor gauge backlight blinks periodically.

Cause: MINI's computer sends diagnostic pulses through its lighting circuit. The diagnostic pulses interrupt the 12V supply to the gauge LED light circuit causing the gauges to blink ON/OFF periodically.

Fix #1: Install a 12V relay between the light circuit and the gauge lighting wire. This will isolate the diagnostic pulses and provide a steady uninterupted 12V power to the gauge lighting circuit.

Fix #2: Purchase an inline dimmer from Steve at Custom Mini Shop. The inline dimmer module eliminates the blinking issue and makes lighting hookup a breeze and also provides dimming function to the gauges from the OEM dimmer.
