When i turn on the headlights the dash lights do not turn on. The tail do not turn either but seem to come on when you put the car in drive with the head lights on.


Hey there..my name is Keith..and the head lights and tail marker lights are turned on by the headlight switch..it sounds like there is bad contacts in the switch on the dash where you turn the headlights on..and that would be the 1st thing i would replace..i hope this has helped..if not please write back

Dash goes out when i turn head lights on


This sounds to me like you may have a faulty headlight switch. If the switch is on the steering column, you will need to replace the whole multi-function switch assembly, if it is on your dash panel, you should be able to just replace the actual headlight switch. Hope this helps.
