Dashboard lights turn off

At night when I turn on my lights the dash lights come on and then about a minute later they turn off. Sometimes they come back on in 2 minutes, sometimes 15, sometimes never. Any ideas on what could be causing it and how to fix it?

Either the headlight switch has a short(but that should mean the headlights would act similar) or the connections behind the dash are corroded or shorting and need to be cleaned, then greased with dielectric grease. I know this can happen pretty easily if rained on without the top on and water gets behind the dash
