    Default 2008 LTZ Dash Light Brightness

    I have a 2008 2500HD LTZ. My problem is that the instrument panel lights are extremely bright even with the controls turned completely down. With the controls turned down, the radio (No Nav Sys) and heater controls are so dim that they are not readable. Has anyone else having this problem? My dealer says everything is Normal...

    Welcome to the site! I hope someone here with the NBS Silverado's can answer your question. BTW, is your truck gas or diesel?

    I have the '07 NBS (1500) and the instrument lights fade just like the rest of the lights when you turn the dimmer down. I would go complain to the dealer.

    If they say it's normal ask them for keys to another '08 in the lot and test it out yourself.
