    Aftermarket accessories? Headlights, alarm, stereo?

    I wonder if it could be a bad headlight/interior light/dash light switch.

    I would try moving the rheostat that controls your instrument cluster's brightness first and see it that might help. If it doesn't you might try replacing the headlight switch which also has the rheostat for the dash light brightness. It should be a pretty inexpensive part I believe and will hopefully fix the problem.

    Good luck!

    If you have an owner's manual ck fuse locations. There are 2 fuse boxes, one under dash on driver's side, the other under hood. If all fuses ok, one of you add ons is causing the problem. I'd unplug each one individually and find out that way which one it is. I'd start with the HID's, then the head unit, then amp.
