Interior light switch....what does it do?

I must be overlooking this or it’s just not in the manual. What does the dial switch on the right do here, one next to the one with the arrow?

It dims the LEDs in the footwell...very hard to detect though as it only slightly dims the LEDs.

One dims the instrument panel and the other dims the "ambient" light in the door handles, foot wells and I believe the cup holders

Ahhhh, great thanks for the replies!

I plan on adding a strip of LEDs in each footwell so this would actually be useful.

I thought that switch was just put there as a cruel joke. I would roll it up and down and see nothing change.

The change is hardly noticeable...I often wondered why they even bothered with the dim switch. Heck if anything, I want it brighter. I even posted a thread where I swapped the LEDs from the factory board with some brighter LEDs. It helped increase the brightness but I still can barely detect the dimming effect of the switch.

Ah here is the post

Hey now, y’all need to lay off that “useless” dimmer switch. Sure, it barely serves a purpose to you civilians, but it is the coup de grace for the cop Chargers with Blackout Mode.

I could never go full-on blacked out without being able to turn off those door handle lights!

And when I say full-on blacked out, I mean it! It is darker’n the inside of a cow’s belly when I’m in Blackout Mode.

Now if I can just find a good reason to go all blacked out, I’ll be set!

In case this gets asked again and someone does a search, here is a vid explaining the light switches.

I was so confused by this, I’m glad I found this thread. Hell, I haven’t driven my car at night yet I didn’t even know I had footwell, door and cup holder lighting!! Win!

When did you find a good reason to see the inside of a cow's belly was dark?
