Most vehicles have the instrument panel light brightness level and the interior courtesy lights [on or off] controlled by the same switch, which usually is a "rotary" type. The on/off function of the instrument panel lights is usually "tied" in with the parking and headlight off/on push-pull switch. The reason for having this additional,manual method of control for the interior courtesy lights is to allow use of the courtesy lights WITHOUT having to open one of the doors. When the parking or headlights are on, clockwise rotation of the headlight switch knob, increases the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Just before full clockwise rotation of the knob, there is a "detent," which if passed, turns on the interior courtesy lights. Full COUNTERclockwise rotation of the knob dims the instrument panel lights to the point of extinguishment, but to my knowledge, full counterclockwise rotation DOES NOT turn on the interior courtesy lights. j3h.
