You can't . The light are part of the radio assembly . You are going to have to replace the radio.

Which fuse is for the instrument panel back lighting?


Does the radio play ? Are any other back lighting components not lighting ? Does the HVAC control panel light up ? You probably need new radio !
The second interior lighting group includes lamps which may be dimmed. This group may use a combination of vacuum fluorescent (VF) illumination, LED illumination and incandescent lamps.
When the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, the radio VF display turns ON at maximum brightness. When the park lamps are ON, all incandescent and LED back lighting turn ON at the dimming level indicated by the instrument panel (I/P) dimmer switch. At the same time all VF displays dim to match the indicated dimming level. The panel dimmer switch potentiometer is an input to the body control module (BCM). When the driver selects a dimming setting by moving the I/P dimming switch potentiometer, all incandescent back lighting lamps are provided with a specific voltage. When the I/P dimmer switch is moved from MIN to MAX, all VF displays, as well as all incandescent back lighting respond from minimum intensity to maximum brightness in response to the I/P dimmer switch.

What would cause instrument and radio light to dim


With the lights on auto, the dash will dim when the lights go on, based on the dimmer setting. If it's set low [wheel] they will be really dim. If it's light outside it will be hard to read. there are not many other causes other than a low battery or bad alternator.

My radio lights are very dim almost unable to see them on my 2006 ford fusion se. What is the cause of this and can it be easily fixed?


Most vehicles have a button for the dash and radio to brighten the inside lights. It may have accidently been moved toward dim. It's usually on the left of steering wheel.

2001 Civic dimmer not working


It's not high and low beam, it's the dash lights that are dim. I've hooked up many aftermarket radios but never knew it was a no no to hook up the dimmer/illumination orange wires in a '01 civic. I googled it and seen many others with similar issues like mine but nothing exactly like the issue I have.

All the dash lights work, they are dim though. The radio lights work but they are even more dim than the rest of the dash lights. I have check every single fuse under the dash and in the engine bay. The dim controller does not work at all now. I'm guessing that's the issue and from what I read, the dimmers circuit board is in the instrument cluster. Some can fix it, others can't.


I will probably end up buying a used instrument cluster off of ebay, they are not expensive. Hopefully that fixes it since everything else works.


Oh, yes, the brake lights work.


Ted, I think you answered the wrong question...I mentioned nothing about the battery or the low/hi beams

Brakes short lights


You need to get you alternator tested, it sounds like the current output is too low.

If the battery is draining when the car is off most of he time it is from eather a light on the you may not be able to see like a glove box light or a radio staying on


to fix this u will need a test light (borrow one or buy one there cheap if u dont have one)
disconnect the positive battery cable attach one end of test light to the positive battery post attach other end of test light to the disconnected battery cable if the light real bright start pulling fuses until the light goes out or goes real dim (the dim light is the draw from computer,radio,etc so small of draw wont hurt battery) once you pull the fuse that makes the light go dim or out check that circuit for short circuits

if when you put test light on light not on or real dim before u pull fuses you more than likely have a weak battery that wont hold a charge

Radio lights off on 1998 ford explorer


1 -Check your head light switch and turn signal switch by taping them lightly - Common problem with fords to short signal light switch/head lights and they also have radio lights/clock lights control(lights dim for Radio/clock when you turn the lights on)

If you have checked all the fuses and switchs, possible that the light bulbs have burned out. Check with a local radio repair shop and they can remove the radio and install new bulbs.

Weak lighting on Radio/Clock Console


call your dealer to confirm. i believe there is a problem with the whole console. i had dim lights on the heat / air section, they fixed under warranty, major teardown not just a bulb. now i have a jammed cd changer and dim lights like you. out of warranty, no help $1200 =++++ fix. it seems like a power supply and chronic problem but call first.
