Somebody install a radio in that car about the same time?
If not ,blame the dimmer for the dash lights.

Check your fuse box. Sounds like it may be a fairly inexpensive fix.

SOURCE: Dash lights turn off when headlights are turned on

Check the dimmer switch. First make sure it is turned up so the lights will be at their brightest. Turn the headlights on, if the lights on the dash are actually off, you probably have a faulty dimmer switch.

SOURCE: fog light indicator (i dont have fog lights)

You likely have a pinched wire in your harness somewhere.
Those cars are prewired for Fogs whether you have them or not. If the wiring is pinched with another wire that carries current, it will backfeed through the system illuminating the fog indicator light.
That light does not normally have power with the key off, so knowing that it stays on with the key off, there is little other possibility other than a damaged section of wiring.
Take it back to the repair shop quickly so you can have a insurance supplement claimed.

I have a 2002 Cavalier. I think the turn signal relay needs to be replaced but I don't know where it is.


the flasher module is under dash near the steering column. could be bright green if OEM. if the low beam light is out, try replacing the bad bulb. that should correct the issue with the headlights.

When i turn my headlights on my dashboard lights do not come on


Hello


If you have a push/pull type headlight switch just turn the knob clockwise (with the lights on) to brighten the dashboard lighting. It is designed this so that you can control the brightness of the dash in darkness.
Someone might have done some work on the wiring and got things reversed, the only option for you is take it back to the dealer and show them whats wrong and it should be under factory warranty take it to a dealer they may fix it for free.

I have an 85 Mercury Grand Marquis and I have no tail, brake of back up lights or rear directional. When I turn on the headlight switch, I get 12 volts at the tail / Brake light (1157) at all three wires....


You may have a defective turn signal switch, all these circuits run through the switch and on occasion I have repaired a Ford or Two with this same symptom when I was working for a dealer in the middle 80's.

Drivers side reverse light on while i drive.


Your car has rear fog lights. The rear light that you see come on with your headlights is your rear fog light. The light in your dash is the rear fog light indicator. To turn off your rear fog lghts push your headlight switch in half way. To turn off your front fog lights push in all of the way.
