Electrical lights on 1998 Saturn SC2

My sc2 dash lights are wacky. They are on when the headlights are off and then go off when you turn the headlights on.... just when you need them to be on. Checked all fuses. Can't find problem.

most of the dash lights on the insturment panel, of todays cars, are on any time the ignition is turned on. when the headlights are turned on the power is routed through the dash dimmer switch. Check to see if when the lights are on you can brighten and dim the dash lights if not check further may be your culprit. If not get someone to scan your body control module for problem.

Thanks. We thought that could be the issue, the dimmer does not seem to function
