Hi there, its just a means of manually adjusting the brightness of the dashboard lighting to suit your preference. Some prefer a brighter setting (keeps them alert), others prefer less glare (allowing them to focus on the road). No right or wrong - just what works for you!

Just thought of something - you may be referring to the roof-mounted light (which is also adjustable on some models), same principle involved. (Just in case I wasn't answering your question at my first attempt...).

This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

Mine stopped working after I replaced the fusebox - well it worked on the speedo, but not on the radio display, and the interior light worked manually but not when opening the doors.
