The Body Control Module (BCM) supplies a voltage reference through the instrument panel cluster dimming voltage reference circuit to the instrument panel cluster lamps dimmer switch, which is part of the headlamp switch. When the dimmer switch is placed in a desired brightness position, reference voltage is applied through the dimmer switch rheostat and the cluster lamps dimmer switch signal circuit to the BCM. The BCM interprets this voltage signal, then applies a Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) voltage to the LED dimming supply circuit to all related interior lamps, illuminating them to the desired level of brightness.
