yes, the dimmer wheel adjusts the brightness but just curious as to why the brightness drops simply by turning on the parking lights? didnt; know if that was "normal" behavior

Yes, normal for most LCD radio vehicles, turning on parking or headlights changes radio back light to dimmer control, versus daylight bright
