I spliced the wires to the power door lock on the drivers side, but spliced them back together later on and none of the lights on the dash (Speedometer, A/C Controls, Headlight Switch, etc) will come on when I turn my headlights on. The only thing that does light up is the Airbag light and Cd Player. I checked all the fuses on the side of the dash and they're fine so anyone got any ideas of what else it could be?

So you're sure that's what it is? Couldn't be anything else, because the headlights still come on when I turn the switch.

check the grey wire coming out of the dimmer switch to make sure it has 12v+ when the parking lights are on. If not you need a new switch or to resplice some wires. Also check the brown wire going into the switch for 12v+ when the lights are on

ok I checked the wires and they have power to them when the lights are on. I took the headlight switch apart and the light in it works, because I hooked it into a 9v battery. Still think it's the headlight switch?

I noticed tonight that my tailights won't come on when I turn the headlights on. Is this to do with the headlight switch or something else?
