The Kia Sorrento instrument panel lights go on and off with the headlights. The headlights go on with an automatic daylight sensor.
turn the dimmer up.
the dash and radio lights are supposed to dim when the headlights come on. Make sure you have the brightness of the dash lights turned up as much as possible.
Some cars have lights that turn on lights automatically due to outside brightness

Brake lights should NOT be effected by the headlights. Brake light function is completely independent of the headlights.

Not having brake lights when the head lights are on is a big safety problem and should be corrected.
