    Question Suzuki Jimny Help needed to dim the dash lights

    Can anyone help me with this problem please?
    The dash lights of my 2017 Jimny are so bright, that when I finish night driving, I'm blinded as if I have been looking at the sun.
    can the dash lights be dimmed? And how do I do this?
    thankyou.

    I don't think they can be dimmed or at least not on my 2015 model.

    Also - Mine is not as bright, does not strain my eyes at all.

    By dash lights, are you meaning your instrument cluster or where the fan controls etc are?

    For the instrument cluster, turn lights on, and then push the button on the right to cycle between odometer, distances for A and B etc. the last option should before going back to odometer will be the setting to change the cluster brightness. It looks like arrows. Once on there, hold the bottom again to change between brightness settings.

    Hope that makes sense...

    I was wondering what those strange "arrows" are when cycling through the A and B trip meter

    At least now I also know, thank you

    I can change mine on a 2013 model. When you switch your lights on, theres a button on the cluster that you press to switch the various trips. The last option is cluster lights.
