Question about 2004 Hyundai Elantra
I just bought a Elantra and when I turn on the headlight my dashboard does not light up. Thinking it may be the light bulb but don't know how to change it anyone know. I am single and limited on money so I have to do it myself so any help would be appreciated. If someone else has had this problem maybe it's something else. thanks
Check that the tail light(s) are working. They act as a fuse to your dash lights.

Might be unrelated. But if you're out of ideas at this time:
My 2003 Elantra had a problem when I would use the turn signals. The dash lights would flicker on and off and if you jiggled the arm of the dimmer switch it would turn the dash lights back on. Over time it got worse. AND little did I know it also made the tail lights and front parking lights flicker on and off!!! So it was not good to say the least.
I took the switch out and opened it up. And inside where the turn signal components moved to make their contact connections, there was a build up of electrical contact grease at the bottom making intermittent contact between two points (I'm assuming gravity and vibration over the years moved the grease down there and built up). I cleaned the excess contact grease from the area. Reassembled the switch. Put back in steering column. No longer having issues.

Did you make sure the dimmer switch was turned up? or check the fuses? that's where i would start. dash light hardly ever go out. good luck
