Does anyone know the ground location of the interior light circuit off hand? My interior lights are pretty dim even with the dimmer cranked all the way up. I'm thinking its
a. dimmer rheostat
b. bad ground
c. resistance in a relay somewhere
d. ?????
e. - not the bulbs, I put LED's in the cluster and they should be blinding the $%^$% out of me. The high level on the knob is more like a normal cars low or medium.

LED's in my door are full brightness so I don't think its battery/alt.

Anyone else figure this out yet? There are a lot of threads on this subject with no conclusion.

At the rheostat (dimmer) these are the wires:

White/Black - ground
Green - 12v battery power (from the tail light circuit)
Green/Orange - variable output to dash illumination

Verify the black wire is near to ground (low resistance).
Check that the green wire is close to battery value when the parking lights are on.
Verify the green/orange wire is close to battery voltage when the dimmer is at maximum.
