Its meant to dim when the lights are on and be bright when the lights are off. It could be a bad regulator on the mfd causing it to turn its lights off when the headlights are on.

Try disconnecting the wire to it that is live with the headlight on and it will stay on at full brightness all the time mate :)

on my astra it didnt light up unless lights were on, i then found when the prev owner had cut all the wires to the stereo thats what killed it, so i bodged the illumination wire (headlights on) from the MFD to the ignition wire from the stereo, lights nicely now :D
