once upon a time my dimmer switch shorted out but i never got it fixed. You probably have a dimmer switch or a fuse problem. CHECK the fuses that are next to the battery, under the hood. Sometimes one of those could have malfunctioned... but if it isnt the dimmer, and not the fuse, then you have a short in the circut. I just didnt worry about it and just drive w/out the lights but one thing you can do is hook up led lights to the accessory power wire for the radio and tape them or drill them in there behind the gagues this way when you take the key out the lights will turn off along w/ the radio... but be carefull not to draw too much power or you will jack something up.
