Very recently, my navigation screen and instrument panel/speedometer started to not auto dim at night. In my display settings, it is set to auto and when I turn it to manual, it only lets me adjust the daytime settings even though I have been trying to change this when it has been after 8 PM. I have been searching these forums and everyone with this problem has said the two roller knobs next to my headlight switch will work but it doesn't. It doesn't matter if my lights are on auto, or manual if the display is set to auto or manual, and even when I did a reset and reset the clock and the date. It is beyond frustrating as it worked fine until a few days ago when I was driving to work in the early morning (just after sunrise) and the screen and panel jumped into full daytime brightness. I live in a more rural town/area so when driving in the morning or late at night, the screen and panel are too bright. Rolling the roller knob down does nothing. I even have my Google maps (I am an Android auto user) set to 'automatic' so that it will do night maps at night. It works if I'm just on my phone but when it connects to my car, the navigation setting goes automatically to daytime (& I checked the car settings, too). I can't find the answer anywhere and none of the suggestions about the roller knob work. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them!!

Thank you!!

I know what the computer is doing.. it is getting stuck in night mode in the display.. I check it out after I reset my battery.. it’s definitely a software issue I just have the patients to sit at the dealership
Let me see if I can load the pictures

I need help! My dimmer control is not working anymore! Consequently, I have no VISIBLE hazard safety button (4-way flasher button) to push when driving at night after working! When the flasher is needed to be on at night the dimmer control and the overhead car light still "does not" make it visible! Took my car back right after I purchased it to the car dealer (within the days allowed) to return it since I worked late at night and must be able to push a visible button to turn on the flasher when needed! A salesman then showed me and told me what to do. He said at night to use the dimmer control to make the hazard/4-way flasher light button visible at night. He said this would always work for me in this new 2022 Jeep Compass Latitude! This worked until recently after my oil was changed. Recently, since then, many other things happening too. The clock time visibility changes when the cell phone is on too making it hard to even see! My cell phone goes off and on making GPS invisible too! And many times, my cell phone will not even charge when in the car! I am a RN in need of the usage of safety precautions in this car that should be available at my fingertips and need to ensure others have this use too! I just went to Jeep services Friday and was told to just turn on my car interior overhead light to see and push the flasher button. Advised the person telling her that the immediate use of the 4-way flasher is needed when necessary to avoid damages to the car, to self, passengers, and other car drivers nearby. I was then told to speak to a salesperson across the street from the service area. A good-hearted salesman did look it over during the day sensing the problems were real but asked me to go back when it was dark outside. Soon as I am able to be there at night, I will go hoping this problem will be addressed. The car dealer I purchased this new car from is no longer active selling this all to another dealership owner.

WOW!! Mine was a simple fix doesn’t sound like yours is at all.. sounds like yours has to been seen by the dealership.. you should contact Jeep cares.. and have them help you with this.. you should still have a full bumper to bumper warranty which will include a free loaner.. and find another dealership to take it too.. they don’t have to see the problem at night.. take a picture of what it does.. I wish you luck with this.. but please contact Jeep cares they can help

this is how the display should look in the daytime with only daytime highlighted to select

when mine did the glitch it was stuck in nighttime mode in the daylight.. don’t know why it’s doing it though


Mine gets stuck like that as well. Jeep Cares did contact me and say that the engineers have noticed this glitch and are looking into a software-type fix to release. So I'm hoping it gets resolved soon!
