    When lights on dash dim

    Hi, have i set something up wrong?

    1.When i turn on my headlights, the dasboard ( everything ) dims to virtually nil so i cant see it.

    2. Is there any way of turning off the sat nav completly as i can only get the screen to display sat nav / phone / radio etc... but i cant get it to go blank

    Any Ideas would be most appreciated

    Hopefully page 2-36 in the owners manual will help. (Instrument brightness control)

    Not sure about turning the Nav/radio display off completely.

    For those that don't feel like going to their cars to retrieve the manual.

    Hold the button in the upper left hand corner down for 2 to 3 seconds it will turn off the Nav. system and will only show clock display...

    I believe I have the dash button lights set to maximum brightness.

    But if I turn on the headlights during the day (in limited light conditions like rain) they all but disappear.

    If there is a way to make them brighter it escapes me. I'm starting to think it may be a design flaw. I.E. that there is no way to prevent them from dimming when headlights are on.

    You can adjust the brightness of the instrument panel... it's that other button on the instrument panel next to the one that changes the info on the driver information center. Press it a few times and you will notice the brightness of everything changing, mine's on max I love the little orange lights everywhere.

    ZNA03 - does this possibly vary by trim level?

    I don't have a problem with the brightness of the orange lights in the instrument cluster, only the brightness of the ICon lights when the headlights are on in daylight (even dim daylight).

    IT'S ZNA FTW!

    Tried it this morning.

    I don't know why they have that button adjustment menu in the Icon display, but ZNA was dead on.

    For those, like me, who were puzzled by this. There are two buttons in your instrument cluster. The one on the right that toggles through the trip computer functions/odometer etc and the ONE OF THE LEFT THAT ADJUSTS INSTRUMENT CLUSTER & ICON BUTTON BRIGHTNESS!

    Now here's the key. I'd already used that button to max the brightness of that display (or I'd thought so). BUT you have to do it 2 different times.

    Once with the headlights OFF (as I'd already done).

    Once with the HEADLIGHTS ON! (as I had not done yet).

    This allows you to set 2 different brightnesses depending upon ambient conditions.

    The default from the factory must have been to a relatively dim setting that was fine for night driving, but not so much for any day use with the headlights or parking lights on.

    THANKS!
