Hi. I have a 94 Chrysler Acclaim. When I turn on the lights at night the dash lights go dim and the gas and speedometer gages go haywire. What could cause this? Thanks for any help.

Get your charging system checked out. It sounds like you may not be charging enough to maintain the battery with the lights and/or other accessories turned on.
Hope this is helpful to ya,
Billy

Sounds like either a bad ground or bad connection somewhere. Check all your power supply sources like wires at the battery, fuse box and bulkhead connecter. Check all your body grounds from dash to body, body to engine, engine and body to frame.
