Auto Dimming Dash Lights

Is there a way to keep the dash lights at the brightest setting at night? I am guessing not but thought I'd ask. Thanks.

You're the second person I've seen ask this odd question. I'd like to be able to make the dash lights dimmer...and that high beam light can burn a hole in your retina...have to get out the window tint to dim it.

I term this an odd question, because the more light 'interference' from the dash lights, the harder it is to see what you really need to see in front of you in the headlights.

So if they can be made brighter, can they be made even dimmer?

Check page 88 of the Owner's Manual and it tells you how to dim or raise the dash light level

To clarify, by even dimmer, I mean dimmer than they can be set to now.
