You maybe be able to change the colour or brightness, refer to the owners
manual.

If no joy there the model may have the option to dim the lights when the car
headlights are turned on, if this is the case then wiring the trigger to dim the lights to
positive will cause them to dim.

Cheers

I don't need a crystal ball, Pimbi, I'm a bit of a mind reader :-)

Up until a few weeks ago, I was driving a number of new trucks that had been fitted with Alpine stereos. The light in them was blue, and really in your face at night. After a couple of trips, had a gutful, went onto the internet, downloaded the appropriate page out of the manual, and changed the colour to red.

These units also had a setting that would black out the screen lighting altogether, and we usually used that at night, to keep the lighting in the cab as dull as possible.

Bob.

Yeh........we have a couple of new John Deere tractors at work with the Alpine stereos which are driving people nuts, flashing blue lines etc, ended up sticking a piece of cardboard over them which hinges on the top, want to change stations just lift the cardboard up.

Check to see if the stereo has a button DISP. Press this or hold it for a few seconds and the light should go out.

Well thank you for all the replies.Other half decided to try & fix the problem Has fixed it ( well lights are off ) but not sure which button was the one .One along the bottom row he says so at least we know there is a way .It,s a Pioneer..& the instruction book has very small writing & also very faint print for an "older" person to read.It said the light would dim when the car ignition is off.Bit had in a caravan though ! Will check "disp " though.
