Dash Lights?
 
Maybe a really stupid question, but is there a way to sit in the car listen to the radio and turn OFF all interior lights including the dash and Uconnect screen?

Looking at heading to the Drive in Movies so will have the tailgate up and would like to have radio on for the duration of the movies and all lights off

Thanks
Mark

Try the dash dimmer, a roller wheel near headlight switch\knob. Also there's a hard button below Uconnect screen and on left that switches screen off. Useful on long trips at night.

I tried the wheel and it only seems to adjust the cabin lights does nothing to the dash lights which differs to every other car I have driven?
But have to thank you, I did miss the big button that says "Screen Off" below the Uconnect screen.

Yeah the dimmer probably only works with headlights on, the first stage working the interior lights then dimming. Duh...my mistake. Been awhile since ive seen a driveIn let alone go to one. What about changing the brightness in the Uconnect settings for daytime use?

Can't listen to the radio in the dark without the dash lit up like Luna Park!!!!!

Took the kids to the drive ins the other night and tried everything, Ended up putting a blanket over the dash and during the movie had to turn acc back on twice as after a certain period of time everything switches off.

The wheel and the Uconnect settings seem to change the brightness only when the car is in run, when in Accessories the dash is at full brightness with no apparent way of adjusting as Iguana and Dreamer have confirm.
Thought I was having one of my blonde moments and overlooking the obvious.

Blanket over the dash seems to be the way to go, but having to keep pressing the button sounds like a pain in the bum when all comfortable in the back

Can you pull a fuse?

You can pop out the start button and use the key to keep the ACC on.
As for the dash, I would say the blanket is the way to go.

Hahaha wish I had seen that before I left last night Enforcer :)
Double movie and climbing into the front to press the button every 30 minutes and then waiting for it to boot up kinda spoilt what was meant to be a relaxing night

I did not know that about the '14 models. Pity, my old '11 has so many great features that they have silently removed for the newer models.
