Disconnected battery to clear codes, now all the dashboard lights dim, help

Evening all i fitted some led number plate lights on saturday, they worked fine with no errors, after doing this i thought id disconnect the battery to clear a 'check system' light i sometimes get on start up, i left it disconnected for 15 minutes then reconnected, the warning still comes on but its something i can live with, and sort out in the near future,
My main issue now is my wife has just come back from collecting our daughter, and has mentioned that when she put the lights on all the dashboard goes dim and is unreadable, so firstly i thought it was the number plate lights that had caused the issue so i replaced them back to normal standard ones, but the dashboard lights still go really dim when you put the lights on, ive rechecked the battery connections and they are fine,
cant understand why disconnecting a battery for 15 minutes could cause this issue,
any advise would be great
Neil

There is a control knob on your dash. It pops out. Turn it when your lights are on to increase the brightness.

Click the thread below for more info. The owner of the thread had the same issue. Thread has pictures to point you in the right direction.
Cheers
