Do the dash lights on your Nissan seem too dim at night?

May 21st, 2015 by

When you buy a new car, there are a lot of unknowns. Even if you feel like you have thoroughly researched the car and the dealership rep did a great job explaining everything, the fact is, there are just some things that you will have to learn on the fly. One issue – if you can call it that – is that people have been wondering how to make the dash lights brighter on their Nissan. Specifically, we have seen this come up a few times with the new 2015 Nissan Murano.  

How to make the dash lights brighter on a Nissan

The great news about this story is that the people that have had this question truly lover their new Murano. But they just want the dash lights to be illuminated a bit more at night. The first thing to check is the adjuster and make sure that it is all the way up if you want them brighter. Of course, very dim lights could mean a power issue, so that’s something to be wary of as well. But if the car is running well and you’ve adjusted the lights as high as they go, there is unfortunately nothing else that can be done.

It may seem that the dash lights on the Murano are much brighter during the day. This is actually true, as the buttons must be brighter in the daytime to illuminate over the power of the natural daylight. But at night, they need to be dimmed down considerably as to not be a distraction. While it may seem like they dim too low at times, this is merely a safety feature. Studies have shown that dash lights that are too bright at night can seriously distract the driver. For the same reason, it’s illegal in many states to drive with your dome light on.

So if your only issue with your new car is the brightness of the interior lights, we would say that you must be pretty happy in general. As with many things, car manufacturers are always going to err on the side of caution and safety – which is something that we should all be able to appreciate.
