Headlights On / Dash Lights Off

When I switch my headlights on, my dash (and radio) lights switch off immediately. Strangely though, several weeks back I noticed that the dash lights would slowly go out after a few minutes leaving headlights on.

Last weeend, I installed a new headlight switch but no luck - same behavior. Any ideas? Should I swap out the dimmer switch for a new one?

Any help is appreciated.

I had the same thing happen to me. Even swithced out my radio cause I thought that was the problem. It was actually the wire bundle directly under my dash underthe steering wheel. I tucked the wires back up and noticed I had a loose wire just hanging there. All is good now and have not had the problem since. Hope yours is easily solved too!
