SOURCE: no dash or radio lights
MAKE SURE THAT THE DIMMER SWITCH IS NOT TURNED ALL THE WAY DOWN. IF IT CHECKS OUT, THEN CHECK THE FUSE FOR THE INSTRUMENT PANEL LIGHTS. IT SHOULD BE UNDER THE DASHBOARD ON THE DRIVERS' SIDE OR TO THE LEFT OF THE AIR DUCT NEAR THE DOOR HINGE. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

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.

There are two possible cause of dim display.
On the deluxe trim level of the Impala the is light sensor. When the sensor mis-calibrated the light will not be at the level you want.
As a test,use a small flash light and aim to the sensor and see is the circuit act according it.
The dimmer light is a VERY CHEAP component. I will glow it out with compress air 1st. Turn the dial back and forth 20-30 time in rapid motion will help remove unwanted carbon,
Use a eletrical contact cleaner to clean all contacts.
Is the headlight in OEM specification?
After market headlights may draw more amperage and cause low power for smaller bulbs.
