Dash display lighting

I haven’t done much dusk/dark driving but yesterday I found in the gloom of a winter’s dusk I could hardly see the dials and info display in the main dash display but the PiviPro display in the middle of the dash was still on daylight intensity (which was fine) so I went searching around the dash trying to find the lighting rheostat........... nothing found. So how do I change the intensity if the screen brilliance on the dash in front if the driver? I know where to adjust the PiviPro screen intensity. Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon

Try the interior illumination switch, which is down by the park brake.

Thanks J,
I asked on another group and was told to bend down a bit further! It’s not exactly obvious and you have to press it in and when it pops out turn it to adjust!

Thumbs Up

It seems a bit out of the way.

Did it fix the issue?

This illumination switch is not fitted to my Defender, I was convinced all the time.

Took a look again today. Magically it appeared...

Good morning Simon- I haven’t tested it yet, if it’s dark enough later today to trigger dusk/ night lighting I’ll give it a go. Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon

Simon, it works in daylight but ............. it seems to have a fair bit of lag between turning the knob and dimming/ brightening happening. I’ll look after sunset again because I think that it was already on maximum brightness and that was really too dark even at night to see the info/sat nav screen between the dials. Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon

I have the same issue.
On a dark day, everything is very dim.
The control dial is on maximum.
Has been like it since new, so may be a dealer fix.
Is the lux sensor in the centre front of dash?
