Q: How do you use the console light?

How do you use the console light?

If your car is equipped with a console light (depending on the trim level), you can turn it on or off with your headlights and parking lights. It will come on automatically when you turn on your parking lights or headlights (or when your headlights come on if they’re set to auto). You can adjust the brightness by using the brightness control located on the tachometer (it also controls the brightness of your instrument panel lights).
