Dash lights issue

When I park my jeep I have to use the Emergency/Parking brake. If I get into my jeep and turn on my lights headlights and dash lights only my head lights come on. Even when I turn the jeep on. They won't turn on until I release the E/P Brake. Have you had this issue?? Please help me fix it. I don't want to end up shorting something out.

I don't have that issue and if it has been happening all the time then I wouldn't worry about it. If it's new, then try unplugging the wire from the parking brake and see what happens. It's the only place I can think to start looking.
