Problem battery goes dead after sitting. Did some testing that led me to lights , possibly dimmer or multi-function switch maybe ignition switch.

a dimmer switch is just a variable resistor and that only passes current at various ratings ( more resistance the lower the light
similarly switches only make and break a circuit so your problem will be after a switch possibly a faulty relay or light control module
some dimmer switches have incorporated an "OFF" section where the light gets progressively dimmer until there is a definite click for off
If your switch has that option then at full resistance but not "off" position then there will be a current flow that will be less that what is required to show light but enough to drain a battery
some vehicles that used this option were older GM or Ford products where the light switch incorporated a dimmer switch as well
the pull to first position put on the dash lights and twisting the knob gave various degrees of brightness in the dash
a further pull turned on the head lights

I just changed my battery in a 2006 honda accord and now the dimmer switch doesn't work. any suggestions.

Earl: Changing the battery should not have caused the dimmer switch to stop working. First make sure you didn't accidentally readjust the dimmer switch. The dimmer switch could be bad or the low beam filaments in the headlight may have burned out.

Headlights wont come on but all other lights do

Dimmer switch is on the floor, right? remove dimmer switch and replace with new one. Probably all rusted and corroded inside, you may have blow the brake switch when you hit the dimmer, also check the wiring to both the dimmer and the brake switches.

1994 Altima dimmer switch replacement

Dash lights don't work off the dimmer switch, but the headlight switch. I would check the headlight switch first.

Could be the headlight switch or the dimmer switch.

Dash lights do not work 2000 ford exploier

All go out at once, first check fuses,then dimmer switch for dash lights, finally headlight switch. To check dimmer switch, pull connection off back, on harness with test light and headlight switch activated, 1 of the leads should have power, if so, use ohm meter on dimmer to make sure it has reading between 0 and some value, if no value, open, dimmer is bad, if there wasn't power then check headlight switch, there should be heavier gauge wire that powers switch and 1 for output to hi/lo switch, smaller gauge wires for tail lamps, dash lights, license plate lamps, parking lights. The color wires from dimmer would correspond to the same colored wires on headlamp switch, probe that connection on headlamp switch with switch engaged and see if you have power, if not replace switch, if so, check wire from switch to dimmer.Now if the lights slowly went from bright one day, to less bright some other day, to not working, then the bulbs are bad... good luck...

Dash lights not working

I could be the 'insturment' or 'LPS' fuse or simply the dimmer switch. It isn't uncommon to mistakenly hit the dimmer switch at turn off the dash lights. First check to see if the dimmer switch isn't turned down. Then check the fuse. If these two are good, I would suspect the dimmer switch is the issue.

High beam dimmer switch on a 1989 Cadillac Seville

Could be a couple of things. One would be that the dimmer switch has over time come loose and is now out of adjustment. Or the plastic piece in the column that pushes the rod that goes to the switch has broke. Or the switch is bad.

Need to see diagrams of the figs. 3-6 from a Chilton's manual...

My son came down and figured it out for me. Not sure what all he did but he had to make a few modifications by splicing the wires together after cutting the wires just under the dimmer switch...then a few adjustments were needed to get it to all work right.
