dash lights go dim. The the next time you start up they will be real bright. This goes on every day

    Sounds like a bad dimmer switch. Try moving the switch and see if it acts up. Dont forget to turn on the headlight when doing so. Otherwise you may have a problem with the charging system.

    is it possibly when your headlights turn on? there are setting in the new vehicles that I would check first. also make sure there are no papers or anything blocking the little sensor button on the dash for your lights.
