I took the car back to the shop and it showed no codes. They suggested I had gotten confused (I do that a lot). I leave the lights on auto but, when I saw them dimming on the dash, I thought I might be needing to save power and I got the idea my headlights were dimming, too, so I turned the lights off. The mechanic thinks, and he's most likely right, that I saw the dash lights dimming as they do automatically as the sun goes down to keep from having too bright lights inside while driving in the dark. I had turned the control for the dashlights not knowing what I was doing (and that also happens a lot). Anyway, problem seems to be solved. Now, how about windshield wipers that come on and go off as they sense water hitting the windshield? Does the Niro have that or do I have to find the right setting on the righthand column stalk? Sure like the feature on the Mercedes that not only turned the wipers on and off as water hit the windshield but also set the wiper speed for the amount of rain coming down.
