Dim dash lights

Hi All

My 2010 Focus "clock, outside temp and odometer" lights are very dim and almost impossible to read in bright sunlight. I have moved the dimmer wheel from top to bottom and it makes difference. Any ideas?

If the dimmer doesn't make a difference that could be the issue, stuck in dim mode. Also check your battery connections are tight and not building up corrosion.
