Is Dimmer Switch Supposed To Work After HU Install?
 
Ok so installed a new head unit not to long ago, only trouble is my dimmer switch isnt working... has anyone had this issue after an aftermarket HU install?

its supposed to work, you may have fudged something up. Mine works. Plus i have heard of some people who fried the dimmer switch and/or did not hook something up right. Take it back to the person who installed and tell them, its supposed to work and it worked before the HU

No issue when mine was installed, any chance it just got disconnected?

Most likely disconnected, there was one socket that wasnt plugged in but i dont know where that goes i only see the extra one on the stock HU...i mean it doesnt bother me just need a quick fix...its just weird to me why it stopped working i will unhook and check again...

Dimmer switch should still work...I don't know why the installer ever would have had to unplug it, if it's unplugged....:noidea:

Your dimmer switch is not on it's own fuse...if it's a fuse, some of your other things will not be working either...

I'm probably going to plug back the old radio and see what happens
