I would check the headlamp dimmer ; it is possibly fried.
If none of the lights dim (including dash lights, speedo, etc) the dimmer switch is probably bad.
Instrument lights fuse blown. ANSWER #2 There is a dimmer switch that controls the illumination of the instrument panel; it may be bad or may have been accidentally turned OFF or DOWN while cleaning the dashboard.
Answer 1 - Instrument Lights Operate IntermittentlyWithout doing a "hands on troubleshooting" of your vehicle, no one here can be certain of the specific location and cause of your problem. However, based on your question, I suspect that the cause is a loose connection in the circuit providing power to the instrument lights, or on the instrument panel circuit board itself.It is possible also, that the instrument panel dimmer switch is wearing out.Answer 2 -The dash dimmer switch or the headlight switch is the most likely problem.
the dimmer rehostat is faulty..if you drive with the dash on full bright all the time anyway you can jump out the dimmer by jumping the two end wires on the dimmer plug
The tripmeter knob located near the odometer on the instrument panal can be rotated left or right to accomplish this.
There is a fuse. There is also an instrument light dimmer. Make sure it is not turned all the way off before going any farther.There is a fuse. There is also an instrument light dimmer. Make sure it is not turned all the way off before going any farther.
probably you have wired it wrong so look at the wiring diagram that is supplied with the dimmer switch and make sure your wiring matches................or..............................you have a energy saving bulb connected whih do not like to dim they will flicker
A rheostat is a variable resistor. Examples are a volume control knob or an instrument panel dimmer switch. As the resistance is increased in the switch the volume will lower or the instrument panel lights will dim.
On many cars, there is a dimmer switch which controls the instrument panel lights. If this switch is turned all the way, it may cause the overhead light to come on. The overhead light will then stay on even after doors have all been closed. Find the dimmer switch, close the doors, wait 30 seconds, and then turn the dimmer switch.
Your headlights may not dim because you don't have dimmer lights. Dimmer lights can blow and leave you with just the high beams.
Dimmer switch (rheostat burned out?) Headlight switch?
The door switch can be corroded or defective. Can also be a Short in the wiring to the switch. Also on some vehicles, you can turn on the dome light with the dimmer for the instrument lights. This dimmer, if turned all the way to one side will bypass the door switch and the dome light will stay on all the time.The door switch can be corroded or defective.

Check parking and tail lights should be the same fuse Check dimmer rheostat for open circuit Could be a bad switch leg
Check the light dimmer switch to see if the lights go dimmer or they stay at the same brightness. It sounds like the dimmer switch is either stuck or bad.
unless your dimmer is turned down..... blown fuse or bad headlight switch. that's about it..
Perhaps switch is bad Perhaps dimmer rheostat has an "open" in circuit
really crappy light switch is my guess, but you can check the gauge fuse on the drivers side kick panel. The dimmer for the dash lights is pitiful, they may be bad there.
When bulbs are connected in series, the voltage across each bulbs also gets divided and hence the light goes dim.
It would go to the dimmer that controls the brightness of the dash lights.
