Why do my dashboard lights go off when my headlights come on. I have a factory radio so that not the problem. I have checked all the fuses.


There is a dimmer switch located with the headlight switch, check to see if it is turned up. It is normal for the dash lights to dim some, but if they go all the way out and you can't turn them up then the switch is bad.

When I turn on the headlights, the radio lighting goes out. A fuse maybe?


just to clarify, the radio lighting goes OUT? or it DIMS...? the lighting is supposed to dim when you turn the lights on (brighter at daytime) and should be controllable by the dimmer switch - the same one that controls the brightness of your dashboard. if the lighting is actually going out, i would suspect a problem the dimmer switch itself. good luck!

When my headlights come on at night, the dash lights will not come on and the radio illumination behind the clock goes out. Why is this?


Check the dimmer switch to your dash light. If there turned down, your dash and radio illumination light will be dime or not working at all. Keep me posted, be glad to know if it is the dimmer switch turned down or you dimmer switch has gone bad. Good luck

Turn the dimmer clockwise to make the lights brighter. Dimmer is the same key as milage selector.
