In front of the yoke where the light controls are there is one that says "Main Panel" it controls the brightness of the numbers in the MCP as well as back lighting for other things.

I could be wrong but I thought that was only to light it up at night, it doesnt actually increase the display window brightnesses on the MCP?

Yeah but thats the only way you can adjust brightness of it, only effects at night, the switch on the forward panel doesn't effect the MCP brightness.
