Best Answer

I have a 1995 Chrysler intrepid and my dash lights do not go off when i turn on my lights but I may know why yours go off. Either right beside or below the knob used to turn on the headlights is a little dile that can only go up and down. This dile is used to dim or brighten the dashlights at night. The reason your dashlights may go off is because you have the dashlights dimmed way down (gotta love little perks Chrysler came up with) so try adjusting that dile. If that doesn't work, you may have an electrical problem or the light may be blown behind the dash. This could be really expensive to fix, so be prepared. .

Are the headlights positive or negative switched?

Headlights in the US are generally positive switched, because the best source of return current is vehicle ground, and US cars are generally a positive voltage system. However, if Daytime Running Lights (DRL) are employed, often the high beams are wired in series, so as to illuminate at about one quarter power, so the concept of which end is switched becomes vague. Usually, one is positive switched, and the other is positive switched between switched positive and the negative side of the first.
