I would look at the dimmer even though you don't think that is not the problem.

SOURCE: No instrument panel lights on 1995 Nissan King Cab

Ye, the dimmer switch still works.

I know this because, when I turn on the left direction flasher, the panel lights pulse dimly on and off with the direction light flasher.

Do I have a defective direction light flasher? if so where is it located?

Your year Pathfinder, as mine, had a slew of bad head light switches. The headlight switches caused a slurry of intermediate nightmares for a lot of customers. Many complaints included:
1. My head lights sometimes turn off upon switching from low to high beams.
2. My lights turn completely off when I switch to high beams.
3. My lights flicker when I switch from high to low beams and vise verse.
4. My lights sometime wont turn on at all.
5. My lights go on and off on bumpy roads.
6. My lights sometimes come on by themselves.
All of these different but similar complaints contribute to the infamous head light switch. There has even been reports of continuous dead battery's due to the head light switch turning the lights on and off intermittently and eventually deadening the battery.
The light switch is relatively easy to replace. Simply remove the the two upper and lower steering column covers, disconnect the two wiring harness bulk head connectors, a couple screws and wallah.
Remember your safety and always dissconncet your your battey upon electrical repairs.
Just last week I bought a new head light switch for about $70.00. I would highly recommend buying a new head headlight switch and not buying a junkyard special. You will likely be buying another faulty switch.
Good luck!!!!

My Delphi radio is opposite of what it should be. When I turn the headlights on the backlight goes dark. When I turn the headlights off the backlight is bright. The dimmer is turned all the way up.


This is NOT opposite - it is CORRECT.

IF you turn your headlights on then the assumption is that it is night time (or approaching it) and that it is DARK outside.
This means that the back light does not have to be as bright as it does during daylight in order that you can read the digits on the display

2008 GMC Acadia. No power to headlight switch assembly. No light, won't do anything. Daylight running light do work and turn lights on. Relay? Which one?


Not sure I follow you.
Since 2000 most GM models use the dimmer switch and headlight switch to ground the lights instead of providing power.
The headlights get power from fuses for left and right, control is on the ground circuit side. So the ground wires go thru the dimmer then the headlight switch to complete the circuit.
The body control module grounds the headlight relay.

When headlights are turned on dashboard lights go out


does it have a dash lights dimmer switch if so if its on its lowest setting it will be apparent when the headlights are on but revert to its brighter setting during daylight with no lights on

Dash and radio lights don't work at night. They are on during the day. 2003 Chev Impala. Have checked all the fuses.


The same thing happens on my 2003 Impala. I found that my dimmer switch has an intermittent failure where sometimes the dash lights go out even with the headlights on.
If I wiggle the dimmer just right, the dash, radio, steering wheel, door locks, and every other light comes on (when the headlights are on). My fix was to mount my Garmin on the steering column in front of the speedometer so when the lights go out I know how fast I'm going. A replacement dimmer (or bypassing the current one and adding a resistor) should take care of it.

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.

Dash lights go off intermittently


I'm no expert, I recently purchased a 2003 vibe. I noticed the automatic headlight's sensors can be super-sensitive, about an hour hours before dusk they'll kick my headlights on (when the sun is still shining!), or sometimes when I go into an underpass, and then sometimes they'll realize it's light enough and turn themselves off. This would cause your dash lights to go to the 'headlights on' mode and turn the headlamp signal on, the intensity is controlled by the dimmer/dome light control on the left side of the dash. Check to see if the dimmer is down too far, as this could cause the lights to dim when the automatic headlights turn on. It's also possible that the dimmer is not working, thus no power is getting to the dash lights through the dimmer. Try testing it by starting the car in daylight, then manually turn on the headlights, then adjust the dimmer. Like I say, I'm no expert, just guessing because I've noticed it happen similarly on my Vibe, but my dimmer was at half-way, as I like it for night driving. Someday, I'd like to disable the automatic sensors and DRL.
