Its your headlight switch... I have the same problem with my mustang.... After time goes on it wears on the copper connectors on the headlight switch and they will either get loose or they will bend and at times losing connections... I picked up the headlight switch from Auto Zone for $16.99... AND I believe that the sound you're hearing isn't coming form your engine but its coming from the headlight switch... Dont quote me on it but I am sure thats where its coming from... Due losing and gaining connection...

I do believe that you have found the problem. The only other thing would be the connection at the headlight itself.

Where is the fuse for the dash lights . the light are bright with key on. Go dull when the headlights are turned on

That is normal. They go bright because during the daytime the outside light is also bright so the lights compensate for the outside brightness by making your dash lights also bright. When you turn your headlights on it assumes it is nighttime and you don't need to have the brightness to see the dash lights so it compensates for this. If you want them to be dimmer, near the light switch there is a roller button to turn your interior lights on just roll that some and it will either make the dash lights brighter or dimmer.

I have no headlights on 1988 mustang gt turn signals brake lights and parking lights and dash lights all work but the head lights wont come on checked all fuses and relays there all good thanks

Check headlight lamps... then follow the wiring from the bulb connections back and make sure you're getting a good solid ground connection. It may have a loose, broken, severed grounding wire.. it's usually attached to the car body at some location not far from the headlights.

On my 1996 Mustang GT, when I turn on my headlights, my dashboard lights go out. Is that a fuse, ground or some other issue?

The proposed problem sounds like the problem I had with a 95 Mustang. Check the tail lights as well as the dash lights. If both are out when the headlights are switched on, the problem more than likely is with the headlight switch. The 95 had a poorly designed wire and plug configuration going into the switch. The wiring was too small and the plug would literally melt. The headlight switch and plug has to be replaced in this case. The problem was supposed to have been cleared with the 96 Mustang; however, a persistent problem may suggest checking the plug/switch combination.
