Re: Light indicator too bright

If you could get your hands on a 1 square inch piece of dark window tint film. Lick it and schtick it..... Voila!! That indicator is now not so bright

Re: Light indicator too bright

About a year ago I posted that I used a marker to paint over it. Today, I am convinced that it was a great solution, never bothered me again, if I buy another WK2 it will be the first thing I do to it.
Hopefully they fixed the problem on the new ones.

Re: Light indicator too bright

Sharpie Market...Remember...

Easy Peasy.

You do not see it, it is easy to remove, it dims by the perfect amount.

Uncle Paul
Did you just color over the lighted area or did you have to color over the whole black area so it was blended in? And how is permanent marker easy to remove --- what do you use to clean it off?

Re: Light indicator too bright

Just squiggled over the bright lighted area. About the size of a pencil eraser. No blending necessary. It does not show in normal driving conditions.

Most any solvent, even hairspray will remove it.

To test, make a sharpie mark on a piece of glass or plastic. See what easily takes it off.

Just marked a plastic bag. Rubbing alcohol took it right off.

I will try this asap. I never seem to get past smelling the markers though. I take them out to use them and wake up the next day forgetting why I have a marker in my hand.

Re: Light indicator too bright

This would probably work too.

Re: Light indicator too bright

I complained to Chrysler about this and asked if there is anyway to dim or disable it. They said no. I took a small piece of black electrical tape and covered it all except for a small part of the top left light ray graphic. Now all I see is a small dot of green light that is the size of the period at the end of this sentence. The tape blends in and you don't even know its there. I get to know when the headlights are on (why I need this is beyond me, but Jeep thought I would). Now I can set the steering wheel the way I want without positioning it to block this annoying light. The best part was it cost me nothing.

Re: Light indicator too bright

haha... this is hilarious. I just got a new overland and the first night I drove it the green light drove me nuts. Glad I'm not the only one...

Clearly Jeep didn't get any customer feedback on this light when they decided to blast us with a bright green light.
