Lexus RX (RX 350L, RX450h) 2016-2022 Repair Manual: Display does not Dim when Light Control Switch is Turned ON

DESCRIPTION

When the audio and visual system is activated with the light control switch in the tail or head position, before AVC-LAN communication is established, the multi-display assembly dims the display according to the illumination signal received via a direct line.

After AVC-LAN communication is established, the multi-display assembly dims the display according to a dimmer signal sent via AVC-LAN communication.

The radio receiver assembly switches between the daytime screen and night screen on the multi-display assembly according to the illumination signal input.
