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.

I have a CDA 7892 alpine works great but would like the display to be brighter seems a bit dim manual does not say this model can be adjusted or am i missing it any help thanks in advance


You didn't specify if you wanted the display brighter in the daytime while headlights are off or if it is too dim when the headlights are on, with respect to the rest of the instrument panel illumination. Too bright is easier to deal with but too dim is tough. If it is always too dim under but daytime and night time conditions the only way to improve brightness would be to very gently disassemble the front panel (easier if it is the removable type) and determine what provides the back lighting. If there are tiny LEDS you could painstakingly add more LEDS or swap them out for brighter LEDS. There could be a lot of guesswork determining if this or that LED was brighter than what is in the unit as built. It may just be easier to live with it as-is.

The display on my DEH-1100MP is fine at night, but


check that the illum (usually orange)wire is not incorrectly hooked up to acc or perm power as it dims the display for night driving (supposed to be hooked up to your headlight parker switch.)

No Display Lighting


One thing you may have to take a look at is if your dash lights are all the way up. I know with my car, if i have my dash lights all the way down, everything looks like it is turned off but still works. This might also help with night driving and knowing what speed you are going. :)

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


There may not be enough power running to the display. What are you using for a power source? My suggestion is to wire your power to your ACC if you have not already. The other thing I can think of is the connection is bad. Make sure the terminals used to connect your stereo are all tight also.

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.

Main lcd not working.


If the unit is a flip face then suspect the ribbon cable to the main circuit board from the front display. If it isn't a flip face then suspect that the back light lamps are out. If you can see a very very very dim image of the display when it is running then for sure it is a back light problem.

No Display?


1,) memorize or write down all of the buttons on a flowchart-very poor solution. 2.) search ebay for an AS-IS item to replace your bad faceplate screen.-better 3.) get another deck-best

Lighting on deck


It could be the dimmer - Press and hold [MENU] (DIM) for more than 2 seconds to change dimmer level setting. I suppose you tried playing with the display button as well. Besides these, there's also a decent chance that either the display lamp is not getting power, or that it's out. That takes taking the thing apart, and you probably don't want to do that. Better take it to a repair shop in that case. Good luck
