why won't my dashboard lights including heater, radio, speed, etc. come on when I turn on my head lights?
Tonight for the first time, (this was after it was dark out..) I turne on my
headlights..they work, but the dash board lights went out..all across the
dashboard...all except the green drive light and the directional arrow. When I
shut the headlights off (camery still running) the dash lights all came on!
The next time it happens, locate your fuse box under the dash and wiggle it. See if the lights come back on. If no luck with the fuse box under the dash, wiggle the one under the hood as well. I have read where on some Camrys, the fuse box gets corroded from the back side causing a short. This is what causes all of your dash lights and accessories to cut off. In some cases, the only fix is to remove the fuse block and replace it with a new one or one from a salvage yard. You may also just have a bad ground at either fuse box as well.
You may have to replace the switch all together. And the Dodge Caravan that would do this and it wasn't the fuse it was the actual switch it would turn on the headlights but it would not turn on the interior lights. So you want to check the switch itself and have that replaced should be able to get it at a junk yard for a reasonable price.

It is your alternator going bad. I can almost guarantee it. The exact situation happened to my camry as well not long ago. Your car isn't producing enough electricity so it's prioritizing your headlights at night, and is prioritizing your dashboard in the day.
