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.

WHY DOSE MY DASH NOT LIGHT UP WHEN HEAD LIGHTS ON


There is usually a dimmer switch for the dash lights near the left side of the dash behind the steering wheel. Sometimes that can get bumped when you get in the car and turn the dash lights completely off.

I hav a 95 cutlass supreme. when i turn on my head lights the head lights stay on but the dash lights cut in and out and my radio also cuts off and on.sometimes when i use my turn signal my radio cuts off...


you have a loose wire or a short somewhere in the dash. Hopefully you can fix without changing the harness out. I'd try some test to try to isolate the problem. with the engine off, and the lights on and radio on, reach under the dash to where your fuses are located and lightly move the wires coming from the fuse box watching and listening for the short. If you cant locate here, move your hand deeper into the dash again lightly mving the wires behind the radio and then the light swtich. good luck of finding this.

Dash lights go off when head lights are turned on.


Your car is perfectly fine. Your dash dimmer is turned all the way down. Your dash dimmer automatically turns on with your headlights. You need to locate your dash dimmer and turn it up.( will be easy to locate with owners manual).

Several dash warning lights came on (idiot lights)


haha ive done this befor.. if you did it its possible you connected wires that dont need use. rewire the end first getting it to turn on. then get all speakers working. anything extra tape off and see if problem persist.
i had a wire i had to cut out. i remember it being a grey.
