On a 2000 Chevy Silverado why would the head lights pop on after taking the parking brake off or when it gets dark the dash board lights go out?

The lights are automatic for your daytime running lights AND your regular head lights. There is a light sensor on your dash that knows when it get dark. When it's dark your headlights will automatically come on, daytime lights turn off and your dashboard lights will dim as a result, since you no longer need them to be that bright when it's dark. As far as the parking brake, it triggers your daytime lights to turn off, so when you disengage your parking brake, they will turn on for normal driving. All of this is a good thing because you never have to worry about turning your on/off...ever.

The headlights on a 96 Chevy Silverado are adjusted by turning the screws on the top and side of the headlights. It allows the lights to be adjusted for optimal night vision.

What light? Headlights / Parking lights can only be turned off while in park. turn the engine off, set the parking brake. Start the engine..... as soon as you remove the parking brake the lights will come back on

Tim Allen does the Chevy Silverado HD commercial, but Dylan Bruno does other Chevy commercials (Cruze, Silverado).

They are daytime running lights. They are always on so people can always see you. Its a safety thing. Newer trucks have specific daytime running lights.
