Speedo and Tach wont light up now, Dash wont dim.

I just need to get this cleared up, before I order the wrong thing. Lol.
I started my car at work the other night, and flipped on the headlights and, my dash lights wont dim, and my speedo and tach won't light up at all.

I'm thinking it's just the dimmer relay in the fusebox, but, I could be wrong.
Any other ideas?

Bump for this guy. Were your tail lights coming on?
I am a Tech for Honda and still am stumped on this. I replaced the dimmer relay and it didn't do anything. Ever get this fixed?

They don't come on at all. I didn't even notice that till just now.
I still haven't gotten it fixed. Glad I didn't pay for the relay yet.
Please someone help me fix this.

This has been up for 5 days now, and no one has answered me but HardKnox, and he's having the same problem as well.

If anyone know what's going on, PLEASE post.

I never usually have this problem with you guys, cmon lol.

Re: Speedo and Tach wont light up now, Dash wont dim.

it could be an alternator issue if its not charging the battery you could notice something like this, my dad took my keys due to grades and i hadn't drove my lude in a while and the battery was low and the wipers didn't work and the lights were verydim along with my gauges. the dimmer relay in the fusebox definitely could be the issue though. hope i was able to help you out
