No other failure> car runs perfect all other electrics perfect.
head lights, parking lights??????

the dash lamps are usually on the park light circuit.
check parking lamps.
check fuses first.

next time say what dash lamps means.
there are a huge number of lamps on the dash
warning lights.
displays
dash parking lamps (back ground glowing for night usage)
called dial lights.
say exactly the lamp that is dead and what it does.

the dash dial lights on all cars have a dimmer control
turn it up,. and bingo the dials glow.

    is the problem a day problem or night, day is dead gauges, or warnings dead, a night problem (dimmer) is back lighting dead, at night. i guess you lost the operators guide? this book shows where the dimmer is, the dimmer only works in park and head lights one.

What would cause instrument and radio light to dim


With the lights on auto, the dash will dim when the lights go on, based on the dimmer setting. If it's set low [wheel] they will be really dim. If it's light outside it will be hard to read. there are not many other causes other than a low battery or bad alternator.

If you already have the switch out, go ahead and replace it. the carbon brush that changes the resistance for dimming is old (1997). Test by one lead on your meter to the brush. The other lead to the large terminal on the rheostat coil. Rotate the shaft to see if resistance varies.

2003 kia optima battery light came on and headlights went dim and then out but high beams still work, dash lights are dim and the car still runs.


The alternator has stopped charging for some reason.
First check alternator drive belt is ok;
Check dash 'battery' (or 'ALT') light illuminates when ignition on and motor not running- if not, check 'ALT' lamp is not blown and connections to alternator are ok;
If all above ok, the alternator may be faulty.
