Might be worthwhile to reach out to Chris at White Automotive and Media services for more input. Perhaps a fellow forum member has tackled the issue. Good luck

resurrecting an old thread

A search brings a lot of questions, no answers.

My GXP the DIC too dim during the day .
Pretty much can not read it in sunlight .

Headlamps on, the DIC is adjustible withe the gauges , from dark to "bright enough"

Daytime, the fixed setting is just too dim.

Has been like this as long as I can remember.
I wrote it off as crappy, but paying attention to my wife's GT, hers is much brighter during the fixed, daylight mode.

Has anyone found a solution for this?

Is the DIC backlit, and bulbs- leds that could be replaced?

Thanks for any help.

PONY MAN Had to break it to you Mike, but it sounds like another trip to the dealership is in the cards. Maybe the defective radio has something to do with the dimly lit driver information cluster, but that's merely a poorly aimed shot in the dark. GL

Dr.Mike,

Greetings and sincere apologies to hear of the DIC brightness concerns. I'm sure that's displeasing for you. Will you be going back to get the unit replaced? Have you made an appointment to take the vehicle back to your dealership?

pony killer I'd just let them replace the radio again and tell them that since you left their shop ,you've had trouble with the lighting. It was their error ,so let them fix it. That's what I'd do.
