in the 92 and 93 they used the radio to dim the ECC...if you removed the radio and put in a aftermarket on you always would get max brightness on your ECC

94+ they changed the face of the radio and did away with the ECC relying on the radio for the dimming....you can install a aftermarket radio in a 94+ and still have the dimming

Pat...can you look up the inputs on the radios and I'll look up the 97. I'm pretty sure if we compare notes we'll find something causing this issue. I don't have a 93 book though.

so what all does this mean using a 95 radio in a 94? Should I check the bulbs or something else.
