Electrical Problem? on 2001 Saturn SL1

When i try to turn on the dash lights but not the headlights, they won't turn on, and the backlight of the stock stereo gets really dim. The headlights will turn on, but not the dash lights. Anyone know what might be going on with the car?

check your dash light rheostat knob on the left side of your dash, it may be turned down. The radio illumination is supposed to go dim when the lights are on, because it is night and you won't nearly need as much light.
