I'm not sure about sieghart234's comment above. Sounds like a spammer to me.

About your lights out thing.

I've found it's usually one of the following things
  • Fuse.
  • Your lights are just dimmed - You need to press the + on the +/- button near your night panel button (unlikely this easy).
  • The +/- button near your night panel button is broken or has a short - Try taking out the whole button assembly and make sure the connections are snug.
  • The light sensor on the dash (that round thing) isn't working and thinks that there is a lot of light coming into the car and therefore it dims everything. - Get an auto electrician to test it.

Seemed rather unrelated to the subject at hand.
