Default No Gauges...

well tonight I got in my car to go home from my buddys place and sometime on my way i realize that my HUD is too bright then i look down to see that my Gauges are not litte (compass/DIC? still work and are very bright like the hud) i know there bright because the car for some reason thinks its light out and is making thing the way they are. My question is what would couse this problem and how might i fix it?,
Also this might have happend once befor because a few weeks ago i was driving up north (during the day) and i lost my Speedomiter (and posible other gauges, i cant remember)but the tack still worked, and tonight when i got home i turned on the interior light when i was parked and the tack was still working fine but since i wasnt going anywhere i dont know if the speedo was out again

Ok, I thought the gauges didn't work too. I'm not sure what the problem is, but it shouldn't have anything to do with the HUD, DIC and compass, since those are digital. (You know how you can dim all the gauges with the ****, while the HUD, DIC, and compass remain bright). I'm not the expert though so don't listen to me.

yes i know that, i checked the dimmer first, and there was no affect, like i said the HUD DIC & COMPASS are staying TOO bright (there stuck in day mode and now switching to night mode, which is why the gause light are not turning on, im trying to find the reason why it wont switch over but im no Electrical expert :(
Im sure its likely the dash sensor but i dont know how to check it

The only wiring diagram I can find isn't much help. It shows the dimmer switch & a "Remote Dimer Control Module". The module gets power from fuse 21, check that. What happens if you turn the lights on manually?
