near the light switch, left of the steering wheel on the dash is a toggle dimmer switch to turn up the brightness of the dash. Press Up to brighten, Down to darken.

Thank you Tom . I found the switch however nothing happened. Its still very hard to see without a flashlight? Could there be a blown fuse or some other reason why this light isn't working. ?
