There is nothign wrong with your car-when you turn on the headlights the car believes you are turnung them on because it is dark outside, so it automatically dims your dashboard lights for you (since it now thinks it's nighttime). Your car already has daytime running lights, so you don't need to turn your headlights on in the daytime-they come on automatically when the car is running. You can keep your dash lights dim or bright by adjusting the small black dial on the left side of the dashboard, whether headlights are on or off if you want to.
There is a shorted wire somewhere in that circuit. Check to see if any wires are pinched under a bracket or brace where he was working. I have seen it where it was a light bulb the was bad. Need someone familiar with a volt/ohm meter to help trace problem. Good Luck. You did not state where he had been working.
Soudn like a problem with the turn signal FLASHER go to bad. Check location under the drivers side of the dashboard, look for a round silver disc
that has prongs on the back .It is attached to the fuse panel and it is directly above the brake pedal mounted to the right of the steering column.

Okay...I've answered this question about 100 times. And anyone that's listened to me has fixed their problem. I know it sounds unconventional...but trust me because you have nothing to lose at this point. Go out to the vehicle...turn the key on the run position...hit the dashboard above the steering wheel hard. Not hard enough to break it or you...but hard. A couple times if necessary. Everything should spring to life. What usually happens is the instrument cluster plug (contact) becomes corroded and loses contact. Either that or the solder joints have become compromised and lost contact. It'll mean that you'll have to replace the instrument cluster. Are the lights by the heater control flashing? I suggest this as a diagnostic application only. Try it and then get back to me. If it works, which it should...PLEASE leave a comment and rate my assistance. Had someone done it in the past, you would know that it works and fixed it already. You can check my comments from waaaaaaay back. One of the Fixya experts tried it and left a comment. It works (a day, week, month, year it depends). It's not a new vehicle and money in your pocket is found money. Thanks.
