Default Help! Gauge Lighting Not Working!!!

I had my front rotors and brake pads replaced today then awhile later I noticed that the lights on the dash (only the gauges) was off. I figured I hit the switch accidentally but lights on the radio read out where on. when I looked down it was still on auto so I played with it an the only time they came back on was when I put the switch in the off position. Anybody know what's causing this?

I don't see how this would have anything to do with changing your brakes seeing that there are no wires hooked to your speedometer anywhere near your brakes.

Next to your mirror controls you'll find a dimmer switch. Check to see if that's set on low.

But why would they come on when I turn the light switch to the off position?

They go to full bright no matter the position of the dimmer when the headlights or running lights are turned off
