Clock Dimming

Ive noticed for sometime now that whenever my aftermarket HIDs go on or before when my nightlights would go on (when it was getting dark out) the clock dims. I have read several threads here on ecelica & in new celica about this issue happening to other Celica owners. So, I figured it wasnt an uncommon issue but I still tried to correct it by purchasing an Optima Yellow Top Battery, Grounding Kit and AEM Tru-Power Pulley Kit. I do have to admit that those parts did improve the situation but it didnt correct the issue. However, today after reading several threads I stumbled across this website http://www.celica-online.de/. At 1st I just went in to look at the pics in the gallery but then I notice that it had an install section. After looking at the pics and trying to decipher the words with Freetranslation.com because its written in GERMAN, I think it has something to do with the clock dimming. Am I wrong? Is this a guide to correct this issue? Does anyone know German that can translate this for me???
