Having problems with your 2006 Honda Accord ?
Where is the fuse for the dash lights . the light are bright with key on. Go dull when the headlights are turned on
What you describe is normal, it is not a fuse problem. The dash lights dim when the headlights are turned on because usually the headlights would be on when it is dark, and less light is needed to see the dash lights in the dark. In the daylight, the dash needs more light so you can see it, as it's competing with natural light (bright sunlight). You should have an adjustment knob to increase/decrease the brightness, but what you describe is what my 09 CRV does, as well as a relative's 04 Accord.
That is normal. They go bright because during the daytime the outside light is also bright so the lights compensate for the outside brightness by making your dash lights also bright. When you turn your headlights on it assumes it is nighttime and you don't need to have the brightness to see the dash lights so it compensates for this. If you want them to be dimmer, near the light switch there is a roller button to turn your interior lights on just roll that some and it will either make the dash lights brighter or dimmer.
