Threads tell me the dashlight dimmer is the knob at the bottom left side of the instrument panel, doubles as odometer reset.

OK what is the dimmer alongside my headlight switch? It is a wheel with 4 positions, the signs indicate it controls lights - which lights?

I have never had working dashlights and am attempting to fix that now with the help of this forum.
tks

Thats not a dimmer
Its the pneumatic head light leveling switch
If you park facing a wall with the lights on and move the dial the beam pattern will move up and down

The "dimmer" for the instrument cluster lights is in the left side of the instrument cluster... Try to turn that clockwise...maybe it is set to the minimum...
