Scotty! This question is kinda stupid but will dimming the dashboard and gps lights lessen load on car battery? Setting it on the lowest brightness to lessen electrical load on car?

But will it make a difference if i choose to do it like for a year or two? Will the battery last longer if i dim all the lights?

No stupid questions here-- but you might get some stupid answers from Moderators. Don't ever be afraid of posting a question. Tiny non-LED dash lights might draw 0.4-A.. Biggest load = Starter, draws 200 to 350+ Amps. Dash bulb by contrast draws 1/875th the current as your Starter. In other words, miniscule. P.S. Wiring shorts, however, can create parasitic draw even in bulb circuits. Great question.
