My 2004 started doing the same thing a few months back. This was preceded by the burn out of the central bulb in the cluster so I thought there just might be some sort of filament short or such - not knowing what else would make it behave this way. As you turn up the dimmer from zero the cluster becomes just visible then slowly fades back to dark. I wasn't sure if this was a direct rheostat control (doesn't seem large enough to be) and wondered if it wasn't just an input for the electronic control module as suggested above.
Can DrCranknWrench possibly provide the instrument cluster and lighting circuits in a size big enough to read?
Thanks - Raydog
