Dimming the instrument panel.

I didn't see anything in the manual and there don't seem to be buttons like my 07 has, or a knob or wheel anywhere for changing the illumination on the instrument cluster. Found the entertainment dimming/settings but nothing seems to change the instrument cluster. Anyone know where it is? Or does it not have it? Might get to me if it is full bright all the time. I do a lot of through the night driving and like it dimmed down almost all the way.

Twist the Trip Odo reset knob. See OM p 162.

My manual only goes to page 157 (last page of the index) and that knob doesn't twist, only the right side one. Wonder if the LX doesn't have that, which would be odd since you'd think the cluster would be common. Any chance of a picture of that page?

There's an Owner's Guide (the wire bound book you are looking at) and an Owner's Manual. The Manual is on the CD or available for download from Honda. You can also get a paper copy for free just for asking.

Anyway, the clusters are not completely common, but I think this knob is. I'm not sure what knob on the left you are talking about. This site makes posting a picture a serious pain. But see the upper right corner of page 37 of the Owner's Guide.

Thanks, I didn't see there was a CD. Got it to work. Odd to me that twisting that stalk does nothing during normal operation, so wondering why they didn't just have it adjust the brightness all the time and not just in the "parking lights with key II" setup.

Maybe so you couldn't dial away the speedo in daylight operation? I dunno.
