For a 2010 (yours may or may not be the same):

For the clock, it's the green wire on pin 11 (center bottom) of the plug.

For the temp/compass, it's the green wire on pin 4 (top, next to the end) of the plug.

"Top" is the side of the plug with the latch on it.

Those green wires have 12 Volts on them when the headlights are on. You may be able to just cut them to get full brightness, or you may have to cut them AND ground the clock and the temp/compass green wires to get them to be bright.

Don't cut, remove the pin from the slot and see if you get the "effect" your looking for. The 12vdc signal from the TAIL circuit dims the lights on the clock, temp/compass.
