    Exclamation Lancer: Why my interior Lights get very dim when I turn headlights On?

    AoA everyone.

    Few weeks earlier it was all fine, but now when I turn my headlights on some of interior Lights get very dim and hard to see. which includes:

    Speed Meter Lights of dials with only 'D' Light. all other Lights like 'N', P, R works fine.
    Other lights in buttons like fan controlers. clock also get little dim but not that much.
    Music players lights works fine.

    What could be the issue?

    I kept lancer in past and its common that when turn on its head lights, its interior lights become dim.
    I discussed with my electrician and suggested me its normal.
    Other option can be to change the meter bulbs to new. (Will clean the dust when meter will be open). Or install the additional relay to provide full current.

    That is the case with other cars like the Prius as well that odo lights get dimmer when headlights are turned on, it is not a fault rather is there to enhance the visibility at night and avoid unnecessary glare.
