Arrow Auto-dim on display not working.

If you have Developer Mode enabled, you can select Developer Settings from the app's main settings menu, then select Day/Night, then Phone-controlled as the preferred option. From then on, your phone will automatically dim your screen.
You have Android Auto installed? Is that from some sort of hack?

Yeah I don't believe there's an "auto"-dim feature for both instrument cluster and infotainment screen. I do notice if I turn the instrument light adjustment / trip odometer reset stick knob to the right-most during the night with the headlight on, both instrument cluster and infotainment screen become the brightest mode or day-time mode which will be too bright for night-time driving. Just can't turn past that little resistance when adjusting the instrument cluster and infotainment screen brightness with that stick knob for night-time driving with headlight on.
