I have trouble seeing the speedometer with my sunglasses on. What is going on?

Asked by Apr 08, 2015 at 07:31 PM about the 2013 Toyota Prius Two

Question type: General

I can't tell how fast I'm going on the highway because the speedometer numbers are so
light.  This occurs only when my sunglasses are on

1 Answer


There's a light intensity "Wheel" in the car. Usually to the left of the dash area. You can turn your light intensity up or down with that. Though if you've got the model with that LED Display instead of the traditional Dash display, then you'll have to call a dealership. Sounds like a defective instrument cluster.
