Dash lights and radio lights go out when I turn on my headlights?

I started my 2010 manual front wheel Patriot this morning, all my dash lights and radio light worked just fine. When I turn on my headlights everything goes out. Everything goes out when I hit the first turn on the headlight switch, the position that turns on the interior lights. When I turn the headlight switch all the way off the dash lights and the radio light come back on. Any suggestions? I just had it in the dealership on Monday 02-24-14 for an oil change, safety inspection and tire rotation.

Any help would be great,
