How can I dim the dash lights on a 2017 Honda CRV?

I work an overnight shift and spend a lot of time driving at night. I don’t usually mind, but the dash lights on my 2017 Honda CRV EX are incredibly bright and distracting. Is there a way to dim the dash lights on my CRV?

Driving at night can be a peaceful experience, but bright lights on your Honda CR-V EX can be dangerous. Fortunately, you can follow these steps to dim the dash lights on your 2017 Honda CR-V:
  1. Turn the car on.
  2. Locate the dimmer switch on the right-hand side of the instrument cluster near the fuel gauge. The dimmer should look like a little pole sticking out of the glass.
  3. Turn the dimmer to the left to decrease the brightness to your desired level.
If your car still feels too bright, use the following steps to dim your display brightness:
  1. Turn on your car.
  2. Locate and select the sun/moon button on your display.
  3. Adjust the brightness to your desired level.
