2008 chevy silverado dashboard light is dim during the day

My 2008 chevy silverado's dashboard light is very dim during the day. I can barely read what radio station is on or what time it is. At night the light brightens back up and you can see everything perfect.

Most likely this is caused by either the dimmer being turned off (happens all the time on my Corvette) or the dimmer is defective.

SOURCE: 1991 Chevy Blazer dashboard lights are burned out. Can't read

Your dash needs to come out. These bulbs push into a plastic piece that "twists" into the back of the dash board. (About a 1/4 turn) Unless you can get at them from underneath, but I think it's to tight.

Sounds like an internal cluster issue.

This could be either a bad headlight switch or dimmer switch. Sometimes the dimmer switch gets dust inside it and causes these symptoms.

I'm having strange problems with my 2008 Chevy HHR LT - no dashboard warning lights come on and the installation of a new throttle body did not solve the problem (see details below).


sounds your variable valve timing solenoids are going out there easy to replace their on the top passenger side of engine you do have to remove the air filter resonator tube to see them, replace the intake and exhaust solenoid at the same time

The digital readout on my dashboard dims during the day. They don't flicker and at night it seems fine. I have a 2002 Mercedes c320


The problem probable is a short to ground on one of ur circuits. when u drive at night u have ur headlights on which forces the alternator to produce more electricity. making it seem normal. or a defective alternator

Radio display is dim during night


Sounds like you have a dimming switch problem. You can pull the switch out, any I'd bet you have a burnt wire at the connector. It's a comman(<spelling?) problem.

Dim light in instument panel at night on my 1989 corvette.


there could be a bad connection between your dimmer switch and the lights themselves. often times through vibration and wear and tear the connectors degrade. check this first. also the dimmer switch itself could be the cause.check all the connections associated with the panel lights, look for loose wires and/or bad connections if there are none replace the dimmer switch
