You could have 2 bad headlight bulbs.
You have to check the fuses for your dash lights.

When I turn on my head lights my dash board goes dark. Turn off headlights the dash lights come back on. Any ideas what is causing this?


Check where the brightness adjuster is for your instrument panel lighting on your vehicle because there will be one. Sounds from what you have said that this is being moved each time you are turning on and off the headlights because they are totally separate controls.

No dash lights when headlights are turned on. Everything works fine on my vehicle EXCEPT today the panel lights don't work. Turn signals, hazard blinker, oil gauge, rpm gauge, speedometer, drive shift...


there is a regulator for the display brightness, you may have it turn'd down or it has stopped working;. it controls the brightness at which the dash lights are. usually has a speedo sign on it. goes up and down. it works with the main light and is conecter to them on the same lighting board if it has gone then a new light swtch control switch will be needed.

Electral the dash lights are not working


check your dash light dimmer switch. it is usually by the headlight switch, it might of gotten bumped accidently. if this doesn't fix your issue then i need to know if all dash lights are out or just the ones in the instrument cluster.

My dash board lights dont work when i turn my headlights on and ive turned the brightness up and still not working, any solutions? and also, my aftermarket radio doesnt work anymore do these problems...


gday mate,geoff here, seems like you may be right, if the radio has been fitted to another fuse, ie the dash light fuse which may well also run the tail lights, alternitavely the new radio may take more power than the original, usnig higher power for more volume, features. check fuse amperage and corrct, look to see ( if you can ) to see the original wiring hasnt been tampered with, if so correct and try again, best i can do without being there,hope this helps, geoff.

Where is the fuse for the dash lights . the light are bright with key on. Go dull when the headlights are turned on


That is normal. They go bright because during the daytime the outside light is also bright so the lights compensate for the outside brightness by making your dash lights also bright. When you turn your headlights on it assumes it is nighttime and you don't need to have the brightness to see the dash lights so it compensates for this. If you want them to be dimmer, near the light switch there is a roller button to turn your interior lights on just roll that some and it will either make the dash lights brighter or dimmer.

My dash board lights just went off.what must be happening


It could be something very simple. You may have bumped the dash board light dimmer switch. It is a small slider switch directly above the rear fog light switch which is directly above the headlight switch. This slide switch will adjust the brightness of your dash board lights or shut them off. If you didn't bump this switch, then this switch may just be bad and need replacing. If everything else works, then it is probably the switch.

Headlights wont come on and bright lights won't stay on hold bright light switch and blower works


I had the same problem. The solution is simple; the ignition switch needs to be replaced. This is an easy do-it-yourself project. Here are instructions:

Check for a switch on ebay, they are about $15. After 10 years they wear out.
