You need to tie them( the stereos lights) into your dashes dimmer switch wiring. This is what that YELLOW wire is for or didn't you read the manual for the stereo unit. Locate your vehicle owners manual. Some have a wiring diagram in the final pages or look for the exploded view of the fuse block. You can tie in through this. If there is no diagram in the rear of your vehicle manual, go purchase the backyard repair manual(Chilton's, Motors, Haynes,etc) or go to the dealership and purchase the wiring/repair manual from them(at an exorbitant cost). OR you could just take it to an installer and pay them the money to correct this issue.

Diagram wires on pionner.... some body know what is the wire orange with white on the pionner DEH-P4900ib??


In car audio wiring the orange/white wire is for illumination, connect it to your lighting switch it is to auto dim the display lights when you turn on your dash lights at night otherwise the pioneer display lights can be annoyingly bright at night. You don't have to hook it up if you don't want to, but don't forget to terminte the end of the orange/white wire with a crimp cap or black electric tape wrapped around the end well, I would recommend a crimp cap or similar. Good luck !

Dim Screen on the 2001 Toyota Prius


Yes the screen dims automatically when the lights are on to suit night driving. I am not specifically familiar with the 01 model, however on my 08 model, the display brightness is also manually adjustable via a button located below and to the right of the display. The button is marked with a series of short lines assembled in an arc. Hope this helps.

Orange = Illumination


Some vehicles have an illumination signal that tells the stereo when your headlights are turned on so that it can dim the display (to help keep from being blinded by overly bright stereo displays at night). If you don't have that signal, don't connect the stereo wire to anything.

Dim Display


On newer stereos, you might have to experiment with the "panel" wire.

I just installed a VR3, and discovered that the more voltage on the "panel" wire, the dimmer the display.

With no connection, you get full (daytime) brightness. With full voltage, you blank the display.

I wired mine up to the car's instrument lights through a 10Kohm trim resistor so I could adjust the "night" intensity. But if I dim the car's instrument lights, the stereo gets brighter. Oops.

Older car -- I can't just flip a software bit. ;)

But I gather a lot of new stereos are like this. The display on my (factory) stereo in the Mitsu dims a fixed amount when the lights come on, but doesn't adjust with the car's instrument dimmer.
