Question about 2003 Pontiac Vibe
07 Vibe. Dash lights and radio/clock display will go off intermittently. Only headlamp signal, warning lights and turn signals show when this happens. Answer from jjbobay was exactly the answer to my problem. The dash lights dimmer will compleatly turn off the dash lights. My dimmer was accdently turned all the way to off and I thought I would have to take my Vibe in for service. All I had to do was adjust the dimmer. A big THANK YOU to jjbobay and FixYa.

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.
