Bad rheostat?

So the other night, I turn the headlights on. I have a '68 SS/RS. The left and right turn signal indicators both light up solid green and the fuel guage drops to empty. If I turn down the dash lights, the arrows and the panel go dark and the fuel guage comes back up to where it belongs (half tank). Turn signals work fine, and hazard lights too. Anyone ever had this happen?

360 CVC- "Highway" is a way or place of whatever nature, publicly maintained and open to the use of the public for purposes of vehicular travel. Highway includes street.
