Gauge Lights too Dim

Has anyone on this forum trouble shooted this type of problem The light switch is new for my RS/SS evrything wired up. Turn on the lights and no matter how far you turn the knob it doesn't get any brighter. It only starts causing my gas gauge to go down. I have looked to see if it is getting grounded somewhere but could use some guidance, thanks in advance

Re: Gauge Lights too Dim

Did you re-install the metal bracket that grounds your headlight and wiper switches? Did you attach the ground strap from the bracket to a good ground on the dash.
I've also had bad aftermarket switches.
The part I'm talking about is in Classic Ind catalog p/n 3937657.
