As of tonight of my backlighting in my gauges is on th firtz my climate control has been doing this for some time,but always manages to come back on, my gauges however tend to stay off for extended periods of time. i have read in other posts that it could be old shoddy soldering, Is this the problem or is it something more complicated?

possibilities

so my dash lighting works when i lock/unlock my car with the alarm, the parking lights flash when i do and so do my gauges but when i get in the car and turn my lights on nothing happens, ive been told it could be the dimmer switch/button could just be shorted or worn out. any ideas?

it's the switch.
when your alarm trips the lights, it is providing power around the switch, not through it.
