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?

I have a 2002 nighthawk 250 that starts but while driving the lights dim, then when stopped lights brighten up? whats wrong?

Hi, Anonymous if you notice your headlight is brighter than normal while riding then becomes very dim while at a stop sign or vice versa you probably have a faulty voltage regulator or the wire connections going to and from the regulator are corroded and need to be cleaned. The best way to do this is spray both ends of the wire connectors with Contact Cleaner or Vinegar to dissolve the green crud, inspect pins or spades for being loose or broken then blow dry with compressed air, apply a liberal amount of "Dielectric Grease" and plug back together. Check your battery voltage with a multimeter while the engine is running at 2,000 RPM if the voltage is 15 volts DC or higher replace the regulator.

I have a 2003 Infiniti m45 and every time I turn the headlights on the dashboard lights gets dim what's the problem?

There is nothign wrong with your car-when you turn on the headlights the car believes you are turnung them on because it is dark outside, so it automatically dims your dashboard lights for you (since it now thinks it's nighttime). Your car already has daytime running lights, so you don't need to turn your headlights on in the daytime-they come on automatically when the car is running. You can keep your dash lights dim or bright by adjusting the small black dial on the left side of the dashboard, whether headlights are on or off if you want to.

Car: 2000 Chev Cavalier 4dr 2.2L? 4 cylinder car? My problem is this my low dim lights are very low, my high beams works only when I hold the lever arm ? (Not sure how to explain this?) any ideas what...

First, be sure that the headlights are actually coming on. These cars have daytime running lights that use the headlight bulbs at a lower voltage. If the car is only using the daytime running lights, the tail lights will not be on with the headlights. The multifunction lever always turns on the high beams when you pull on it (it's called 'flash to pass'). Make sure the headlight switch is working, and also check the headlight circuit breaker.

the lenses are most likely clouded over? yellowed? sometimes you can buy a kit to polish them, but I would recommend replacement, polish doesnt last long, and you will need to replace them anyhow. the DRL lights are operating normally

This is normal for that vehicle.
It is for safely during the daytime. It is called DRL (Daytime Running Lamps). You can pull the DRL fuse and no harm will happen; however, you should allow them to stay on.
You may have noticed two things:
1. The lights are somewhat dim and not full brightness (normal).
2. Look around when you drive, many cars have DRL...

My car crown victoria 2007 the headlights are on all the time night and day (without the auto )only they go off when i put it on the Parking mode

That is normal... (for safety in the daytime).

Notice that in the daytime, the HIGH BEAM lamps are lit, but they are "dim", not bright.

If you turn ON your headlights in the daytime, a different set of headlamps light up.

Hope this explains that....
Now you may notice "many" cars in the daytime with headlights on...

Headlights always on

They're daytime running lights, it's actually a different bulb in the headlamp than your regular light. Most cars have them now, as a safety feature.

Headlights wont work

Well...lets start with the obvious. Check fuses and NEVER piggyback any stereo or security stuff into their dont want the lights to shut down during a night drive!!
Check under the hood for a relay center...also has some fuses there as well.

The Daytime Running Lamps are a "straight through wiring configuration". Doubt it even goes through a headlight switch at all.
But the regular lights do.
Unless you've worked on the front of the car and forgot to plug the headlights back in, do this...
Turn the light switch on...looking at the instrument cluster , can you make the high-beam-indicator light come on?
As you rotate the headlight switch knob...does the instrument panel lights brighten or dim? You probably have a faulty headlight stores have them...they simply plug in.
