    Let's deal with the basics first. How old is the battery?

    maybe the dimmier is turned down to low position. Try twisting the mileage reset or date/clock (cant remember which one it is) button.

    If not a duff battery.

    Cheers

    The dash lights are supposed to dim when you turn the headlights on as it is assuming it is dark!

    Yup as above Andy is right- there is a sensor in the instrument cluster which measures the amount of light around it and adjusts its brightness accordingly.
