Make sure it is on auto color mode then make sure that your instrument cluster intensity is not set all the way to one side. I hope you tried this like I said early and someone else said it after me. This should allow it to auto dim.

i'm a Mopar guy from way back.
64 factory v8 4 speed Cuda, 68 Roadrunner,the list goes on.
i did 6 months worth of evaluating before dropping on a 47000 truck.
i'm just telling u what is happening!!!!!!!
jeez people, i'm 54 years old and i know how to read the owners manual.
traction control is turned off.
it's in 5th not mds.
3:55 gears,everything else is factory with the exception of a camper top.
it will barely spin a tire turning a corner!!!!!
if you get a damp road you can make them spin for a fraction of a second before torque management takes over by throttling the engine back!!!
7500 miles so i don't see it getting any better,but it is 4x4.
11-12 around town,16-17 freeway unloaded,11 pulling a 21 ft Triton Bassboat.
may take it in and let them tell me just feels very loaded,underpowered of the line till u get to 3-4000 then it takes off.
throttle lag sucks,and most times it will not downshift into what i would consider the correct lower gear when u floor it.
i guess it will just be something to put up with till a tuner gets on the market or i trade it off after 6 months!

radio has a screen that says daytime and auto and nite time.
daytime is bright,push the nite time and it's dim,push the auto and it stays bright!!!!

and the Suburban gets 9 to the gallon i don't care what you are doing.its the heavy 3/4 with the towing package so all the brakes,springs etc are 1's got 35 in BFG's on it,and yes it will spin the tires!
