    Does the dimmer switch suppose to dim the cluster? Because mine only dims the buttons when the headlights are on, it does not dim the cluster lights :confused: I don't remember if it did before, can anyone check quickly if yours dim. THANK YOU

    Just checked the fuses, they are alright, I'm clueless to what the hell is going on. Any ideas?

    The thing is that I think I remember that they dimmed. Anyone with a base model can confirm?

    Yes, but I'm talking about the dimmer switch on the left side of the cluster, what I meant is that the only thing my dimmer does is dim the switches and a/c control lights, obviously when the headlights are on, otherwise swtiches are off. I've been digging around the forum and it may be the dimmer switch itself that could have been damaged during installation of aftermarket radio, but my wiring is correct so I don't know...

    I really don't care if it dimms the cluster or not, but I do worried about what caused this, because it could mean more trouble in the future. I'm going to double check my radio wiring again just in case.

    ... and if anyone is wondering about the laptop, I think its probably the inverter, I hope I can find one cheap on ebay. :eek:

    EDIT: Okay the laptop is now working WTH? lol
