My clock will work during the day but as soon as the headlights turn on my dash and clock turns off. I've checked all the fuses already and no problems.

Do you
have the same problem?

Have you tried using the dash light level adjuster?

I know the clock will dim when the headlights are turned on. The dash lights aren't supposed to be on unless the headlights are. If the dash lights and headlight/multifunction switch are acting up, it most likely needs replacement.
