Question about 2008 Jeep Patriot
It sounds to me like you may have a defective dimming switch. Are the instrument cluster lights working as they should? Do they dim/brighten with the dimmer? If the instrument cluster is working OK, then it could be an internal problem in the radio unit itself. Your panel lights are computer controlled. The processor in the instrument panel controls them. It uses a digital signal to "tell" the radio to either dim or brighten its lights. If the radio is failing to do so, the radio is the most likely cause since the lights work on "full power" which is also commanded through the same data lines. (this eliminates the signal from the cluster and the connection through the data lines.)
