Exclamation Every Swift has an Illumination control

This may sound useless to the ones who are aware, but I bet atleast 50% of the Swift owners are ignorant about this. More so, because in a different thread it shows that most were unaware of the rear fog light in all Swifts!

Yes! I just discovered yesterday that my 3 year old Swift has an illumination control (as in Dzire).

Adjust the meter light brightness.

Switch on the park lights and press the switch for odo, the 4th option will show a set of progress bar, long press at this position will increase and decrease the meter console brightness.

You can adjust the brightness of the Speedo, Tacho, fuel guage etc at the night. Simple shuffle through the little probe provided to reset your odo & trip meter unitll you reach a symbol which shows like this

(000)

Now keep the probe pressed for 3 secs until the display changes to (00).
Got it? More the "0", brighter the dials.

It is not a long subject of discussion and the intention of the thread is to educate swift guys on the illumination control.So all swift owners are keen on the dzire developments and so the same purpose is served.
I dont mind this continuing here but it was just a suggestion buddie.

Thanks for the info, guys. I did not know about this and when last week I came across the '0000' while shuffling thru the odometer and 2 tripmeters, I thought that the odo/trip meter conked.
