Dashboard Lights go off...

Okay so this just started today...so everytime I turn on my headlights my dashboard lights go off. I haven't had time to do any tinkering but do you guys have tips on where I should start?

I second Rob. Roll that little wheel all the way up and see if it helps.

you would be surprised....


My Acura Integra's fuel pump fuse looked ok, but I replaced it anyhow because the car would not start and guess what.....


Dont't worry I had the same thing happen to me last week, I was like WTF followed by Doh!!!....
