Default headlights on then dashlights and gauges fo out

I cant figure out why the dash lights and gauges stop working when i turn the headlights on. Also I think my headlights are on high beam when they should be on low. I just swaped out the motor and the trans in this car (1990) from a 1989. Could of I done something wrong?

eUHH, crossed wires? headlight switch wired wrong? A short? I've never seen this problem before.
