Most mornings going to work, I can pull down the visor, close the curtains, stare into the sun, and then the damn lights come on. Not a problem per se, but the dashboard and MyGig also dim their displays, making them unreadable ...... and I find they don't dim quickly in most oncoming traffic at night. Is there no way to adjust the sensitivity? I saw someone on some Dodge/Chrysler forums mention being able to adjust the sensitivity through some extended EVIC menu.

There are a lot of text questions like this what exactly is causing this? The mystery is revealed here today ......
