Dash Brightness

On most cars you can adjust the brightness of the instrument cluster. My 2006 Accord doesn't seem to have that feature. Basically, when I turn on the lights, everything dims. Especially the radio/HVAC screen and I can't see it. Anyway to fix this issue?

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm sure this question has been asked before, however my searching did not turn anything up.

Thanks.

Turning the knob on the instrument cluster will dim/brighten the cluster. When you turn on the lights everything autodims but you can override the autodimming by turning the knob clockwise when the lights are on.

Wait, what knob are you talking about? Does that work for the radio brightness too?

Ahh. OK. I am going to try this out when I leave work. Thanks everyone! I would have looked it up, but I don't have the manual when I bought the car a few months ago.
