2015 Wrangler--Dimmer Control for Pioneer head unit?

Post by bgshacklett » Thu Oct 31, 2019 12:14 pm


When I turn on my lights, even just my parking lights, my Pioneer head unit turns to night mode. On a rainy day, this is problematic, as there's usually enough light to make it difficult to see the screen. My vehicle (a 2015 Jeep JK) has a dimmer switch which has a "daylight" position that will cause all other illumination to be at full brightness. Is there any way to tie this to the head unit to keep it in daylight mode?

Unfortunately, no. Like every other interface company, we simply follow the illumination code from the vehicle and dim the radio when that code is active (when the parking lights or headlights are on). There might be a setting in the radio to manually adjust its dimmer and brightness, but I'm not sure on that specific model.
