I'm not being a 'Smart A-s here, but have you looked in the owner's manual? I have a Ranger pick-up, and the combo, dome light switch, and dash lamp dimmer, are on a thumb roller knob, down by the headlamp switch. When all else fails, go ask the dealer.

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

I had a routine tire rotation and car alignment on yesterday. As I drove my car later in the evening, the vsc/ecm dash light came on, followed by the brake and battery light, radio and dash lamp lights...


Sounds like you lost the charge from the alternator.
When the alternator quits charging your battery light comes on and your car will run on battery power only...and only for a short time.
As the battery gets its stored energy used up...everything that is electrical will get slow or dim.

I'd check your alternator for proper operation and its drive belt...

Hope this helps...

Digital display went dark. Everything else seems to work fine. Cannot find any problem with fuses.


Unfortunately there may not be a cheap fix for this. You can try to replace the switch that dims your dash lights, but you will probably have to replace your digital dash.

My Pioneer AVH-P5700DVD's screen is very dimmed i can bearly see the buttons, it seems like there is no brightness in the screen please help... I checked everything already... Maybe is a dim adjustment?


it could be a dim adjustment. did you hook up the dimmer wire to the factory harness if so and your dash lights are low then thats the issue. if not then check the brightness on the unit. if that is not lowered then the internal lights inside the unit have started to burnout. if thats the case uninstall it and send it in for repairs

Your dash lites are on with headlamps off? I'd check the wiring for headlamp switch/dimmer. Not only check the fuses, check the fuse circuit for voltage, use a test lite. You could use a jumper to bypass dimmer, see if dash lites work.

You Digital dash is working as it should, it is supposed to dim with the lights on so your eyes don't have to adjust, from looking ahead to checking speed and back
