Default 2013 Taurus Question

I have a 2013 Taurus Limited. Great car! Enjoy the backup feature. Great gas mileage. Super pickup. Beautiful looking car and get compliments on it. Here comes the dropping boot! I have turned the lighting up as high as it will go for the dash, but the speedometer, 85% of the time, is invisible. I can't make out the speed. I am wondering if a light has burned out, if such exists?? If it does exist, where is its location and how difficult is it to replace?

I just posted a similar problem with my Taurus. The speedometer dims at night or in an indoor garage when it should be the brightest. I cant get an answer for this issue.

The panel dimming is a normal feature for over brite/ glare in low light conditions.

I just cant understand that a dimming feature is normal under low light conditions. To me it should be the opposite.

Some/later MY’s your able to cancel auto panel dimming through the Message Center.
When dimmed, can you manually overide the dimming feature with the panel dimmer control?

If in dimmed mode, can you manually raise lamp output over the programmed level using the dimmer buttons?

The dimmer button is at it's highest level at all times. Any higher and the dome lights activate.

With the lamps in manual mode, the auto backlight dimming HL ops should be canceled
