turn on your headlights
The headlights could have bad bulbs or a bad fuse; the two sets of lights are on different circuits.
check the fuses - there is no fuse for the headlights.
First check your fuses if none are blown then check the switch.
Turn on headlights/parking lights and adjust dimmer control
If you turn up your interior dashboard light settings, then the radio display will be brighter too. The radio dims to the setting for the dashboard when the lights are turned on.
Because it is British.
Because the power for your headlights is pulled from your battery. When the dashboard lights dim after turning on the headlights the dashboard lights aren't getting as much power as they were with the headlights off. With the motor running or off? The headlights draw a lot of current, but should not visibly affect other systems. There could be a problem with a worn out battery, an alternator that isn't charging correctly, or you have a bad earth between the battery and the chassis. Check the large cable connection between the battery (usually negative these days) and the bodywork, or between the engine block and the bodywork.
its probably something to do with the wiring system
Fuse for parking lights probably blown.
Check headlights and dashboard lights first. If no/minimal power for the lights then replace battery.
Some cars have a knob for the headlights. If this knob is turned left or right when pulled out, it changes the brightness of the dashboard lights from off to full brightness.
usually this flickering affects the headlights to and is caused by a bad alternator
no. however your indicator lights are located in your dashboard. dashboard light will light up when you turn your headlights on. Ex. the lights that are illuminated behind your miles per hour needle or behind your fuel gauge. Your indicator light are a lights that come on when your first turn the ignition. these lights indicate when your oil needs to be changed or your fuel is low or your washer fluid is low or the blue light that is illuminated when your headlights are on bright or high beam etc.....most newer model cars are equipped with the indicator lights. hope this is helpful.
you most likely have a short somewhere in your wiring
Yes. When you turn on the lights there is a circuit for the headlights, one for the dashboard lights and a third for the clearance and taillights. Any one of those circuits can fail independantly of the others.
Check the grounds on headlights
bad switch. short in the system. hope it helps. duboff
You need to replace your head light switchRutifo
I had a similar problem with a Pontiac some years back. It was a bad dashboard ground. It may not be it, but I would start there.
You will need to look up by the dashboard. It is most likely that they will be located there are near the button to turn on the headlights.

they are photocells....they adjust the headlights from daytime lights to headlights when it gets dark out and vise-versa
If the Ford Galaxy dashboard lights don't work, there could be a problem with the fuses. There is also a possibility that a bulb is burned out or there is a short in the wiring.
Check with your driver's manual, it will show you where the dash illumination control is.
