Thanks Vilacr, what does it do, dim and brighten the dome light when it’s on?
I've never heard of a car with a dimmer function on the dome light, though that doesn't mean they don't exist. I would have thought it's the dimmer function for the brightness of the instrument lighting. I prefer mine set fairly dim by some people's standards.

I was just st the dealer “pulled my mirror off by accident lol” the kid said that the dimmer is for accent lighting, I have to check it out when it’s dark. Not sure if he’s right or not.

There is another knob for the instrument light.

He did put the mirror back on in about 2 minutes. You need a special tool and the mirror has to go on sideways, just in case anyone does the dummy like me!

One of those buttons should adjust the led dimmer, most notiable on the dash and the floor lights. Really only noticeable at night. I think when dash is at its brightest thst will shut the led floor off. Then dial a little bump down and the floor will be at its highest level, down further snd floor will go dim to off.

I found the one on the right dims the dash lights, while the one on the left only seems to control the floor lighting. What the heck? Is there anything else that left dimmer does? Weird.

He said something like maybe cup holders and things like that. I haven't checked it yet.

Yeah, it controlls the footwells and cup holder lighting. But the way it works is really odd.

I'm curious if my 8.4 inch touchscreen will be dimmable separate from the dash lights. While night driving I like bright dash lights but subdued touchscreen. All I see in the manual is that I can turn the touchscreen off.

You can adjust the brightness level based on if the headlights are on or not.
