    My dash clock and radio display lights dim when I turn on the headlights. Is this normal? I still have the original radio installed. Does this happen to you?

    you should be able to adjust the brightness by turning the knob.

    Yeah I can adjust the brightness I just wasn't sure if I had a electrical problem if my clock and radio lights dimmed when turning on the headlights. Thought I'd check with my fellow sn95 broskies. Thanks for the feedback! Its always done that but I just replaced my dash clock so I forgot about it until now.

    It's brighter in the day so it can be seen in the bright sunlight but that would be to bright at night so it dims when you when you turn the lights on.
