Dash goes nuts when I turn parking/headlights on..

What's up all,
Whenever I turn my headlights or parking lights on my tach and gauges other than the speedometer stop working, and all the indicator lights come on. It's not constant and seems to be trigerred my bumps. Where do I start??

Have to check grounds, swithes, and for bad wirs. I had this problem. For me it started with the head light switch going bad and over heated. Ended up melting a group of wires together behind the dash.
