Does any one know if the brightness of the digital dash and the infotainment screen can be adjusted up and down ?

Only have Bolero and analogue dials (which I think are controlled by a knob by the driver's right knee as per usual), but would be surprised if your digital stuff didn't have similar controls in Menu, Settings, Display on the infotainment.

Thankyou, I have the answer now and there is a way to do it in settings - but the headlights have to be on whilst doing it. Seems ridiculous to me and an added complication.

Very weird, but I've got rather used to that!

I wondered why you had to set it with the lights on, and asked a couple of days ago when mine was in for service.
It's so that you set it when it's in dim mode. If the lights were off, it would be bright ( daylight mode), and you wouldn't tell the difference.

Strangely, whilst I was hanging about for the car to be done, another fella was in with a week old Fabia. His headlights stay on all the time ( day and night) when the engine is running, when the lights are set to auto.
The tech bloke was very confused as they had tried a number of new light modules on the car, and it still did it. Everything else worked as it should when a torch was shone at the sensor, but the lights were stubbornly staying on!
Not just the Kamiq with hiccups then.

Rags.
