When you say you 'lose instrument panel', does that mean instrument panel lighting or the gauges go dead?
When you flip off the headlights, does the instrument panel come back? If it does, forget the fuse box.
If it's the instrument lighting, I'd be looking at headlight switch itself. In Safari's, the headlight switch and panel dimmer switch reside in one assembly. Coincidence? I think not.
I recommend replacing the switch. You can find one at a salvage yard for $5.00.
When you do the replacement, inspect the plugs and wiring attached to the old one for anything suspicious (loose wires, frayed insulation, bare wire, charred wire, etc.)
Let me know how it turns out.
If this works out for you, please take a sec and rate my solution.

I will assume you have tested the bulbs, if so replace the head light switch, make sure the connector is not melted or burnt, if it is you will need to buy a kit from Dodge and repair the wiring harness.

With electrical problems I always look for a bad ground wire, especially on older vehicles. Look for any wire that goes to an inner fender or the engine, there maybe a faulty relay in the circuit too. good luck, Chuck

There is a circuit breaker inside the headlight switch body. It gets weak over time and use. The breaker is actually mentioned in the owners manual. A new switch is about $75.00 at the local parts store. You must remove the front of the dash to change the switch. Mine would go off and then in about 30 seconds reset and the lights would come back on. I would be driving down the road with my headlights flashing as the circuit breaker opened and closed. New switch = problem fixed.

There is a fuse you may have more then one fuse box look under the hood & under the dash. Most of the time Chrysler will just put a number next to the fuses. Go to your owners manual & see what number is your head light fuse. If you still can't find the right fuse take your test light & check both side of each fuse if one side lights up & one side does not replace it with the same size fuse.
