Screen Brightness each night

I have noticed every time my headlights turn on automatically that my media screen stays at a brighter level. I have continued to bump the dimmer switch down each time and the screen dims as it should. The next night though it's back at full brightness.

Any feedback on this issues?

Mines on a rotary dial? Is yours different? Once set it doesn’t change for me.

There are 3 positions,

Adjustable brightness, parade mode(daytime brightness) and dome lighting

What do you mean by “bump the dimmer switch”?

Like up a notch then back?

Media screen will be excessively bright and out of sync compared to cluster. Move the dash dimmer switch-in my case i roll it down then back to where i had it and the media screen will be back to normal. I haven't figured out what causes it other than we see it every now and then when driving at night.

Thanks for clarifying.

That’s a fascinating issue. Haven’t seen this myself.

I find the light a little too dim at max and too bright on parade mode. But not related.

This is similar to a problem I’ve been having. If I use Apple Car Play with my iPhone and use Apple Maps to navigate instead of the built-in navigation system, then Apple’s female voice comes on periodically and gives me turn-by-turn directions. If I turn the volume down during one of the directions, it will turn down properly. But on the very next turn her voice is blaring out again at the original volume level.

I should add that I’m on the pre u73 and pre u94 software levels.

I have only the OTA update from September on my vehicle if this is a datapoint.

I haven’t had the CarPlay issue either with iOS 10.3.3. I just updated to iOS 12.1.2 so we’ll see.

There are lots of known issues with apple iOS 11/12 worth checking

It would seem to be more of an issue with the van, I think. For what it’s worth I am on 12.1.2. When I turn the volume dial down I can see the volume level go down from, say, 16 to 8. And the next time an announcement is made it’s right back up there again at 16.

Are you using wired or wireless CarPlay?

I found no exact matches for this fault profile with ios12 problems. There is an extensive list of bugs however and people always blame the car first.

Warranty doesn’t cover connectivity issues, so worth looking at the phone first unless you’ve got deep pockets.

This is the closest conversation even if it’s the opposite issue. FWIW.
