You don't say if it's "just" the dash lights, or if other lights do it as well. Try turning on a dome light and see if the dome light does it along with the dash lights. Do you notice your headlights doing this as well? These are just troubleshooting steps. If multiple light sources (dome, headlight, etc.) do it, then it's most likely a voltage regulator issue.

Dash lights come on with the headlights then shut off


Do you have a dimmer for interior lamps? Like a rheostat, a little wheel that you turn up or down to brighten or dim interior lamps. Usually the instrument cluster lamps brighten and dim the same way.
Can you brighten and dim the other interior lamps?

On your dash is a little round switch with a ballast resistor in it, by turning it clock wise or counter clock wise you can change the settings and intensity of your dash lights.

its your run-flat tyre light.. it means you might have a flat or deflated tyre, but if all your tyres seem fine it could be your ABS system, get it checked by an auto electric guy as opposed to a mechanic - advice: dont go to the dealer!!! they are a rip-off...

Just under handbrake there a button it showing on dashboard when turn key off brake light stay on


This is probably the run flat tyre sensor telling you that one of the tyres is down. Check the pressure on all 4 tyres, and get them all to the proper pressure. The button under the handbrake is a reset button for the run flat tyre sensor. With the engine off, hold the button in and keep it held in, start the car up, keep the button in until the light goes off. If it doesnt go off, just wait 10 or 15 seconds, then let go of the button. The warning light should go out. If this happens again, check your tyres again as you may have a puncture that you don't know about.
