2018 GCL Nav brightness

I'm sure someone has an answer for this. My Nav is too bright at night. The "Display Brightness with headlights on or off "are both grayed out. Any help would be appreciated! 2018 Grand Cherokee Limited Thanks!

I have the same issue with my '12. I have Auto Brightness on and it doesn't change.

The Display Brightness will be greyed out if the line above it is set to Auto. Check the Manual box and you should be able to adjust it. I also have a 2018 GC and mine is set in Auto mode but the nav is not too bright at night on it.

Have you tried the dash dimmer knob by the headlight switch? It might be clicked all the way up to Parade Mode.

After review of your Owner's Manual, I found this information on page 185 regarding "Interior Lights":

The brightness of the instrument panel lighting can be regulated by rotating the dimmer control up (brighter) or down (dimmer). When the headlights are on you can supplement the brightness of the odometer, trip odometer, radio and overhead console by rotating the control to its farthest position up until you hear a click. This feature is termed the “Parade” mode and is useful when
headlights are required during the day."

We recommend reviewing the manual for assistance!

Hi, frank1969. I pulled up the Owner's Manual for your Grand Cherokee as well and found this information on page 514:

"Display
After pressing the “Display” button on the touchscreen, the following settings will be available:

Display Brightness With
Headlights On

To make changes to the Display Brightness with Headlights ON setting, the headlights must be on and the interior dimmer switch must not be in the party or parade positions."

We recommend checking that page out as it does have a table that I am unable to copy/paste here and it may be helpful.

Turn Auto brightness off AND then set brightness with headlights off while they are off, then turn them on to set the brightness with headlights on.


The problem I've had is I can't get it to remember those settings, even if I re-memorize my Driver 1 and 2 settings.
