Complaint - Exterior Lighting

2007 PRIUS, WITH HID HEADLIGHTS. BOTH LIGHTS GO OUT AT THE SAME TIME, LEAVING YOU IN TOTAL DARKNESS. WHEN YOU TRY TO TURN THE HIGH-BEAMS ON IN THIS CONDITION THE ENTIRE DASH LIGHTING SYSTEM BLACKS OUT. THIS HAS HAPPENED ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS BEFORE WE ACTUALLY UNDERSTOOD THEY PROBLEM. IT WAS VERY INFREQUENT AT FIRST, STARTING ON THANKSGIVING 2009. IT HAS HAPPENED TWICE THIS PAST WEEKEND. I HAVE CALLED A TOYOTA DEALER AND THEY TELL ME WE NEED TO REPLACE THE HEAD LAMPS. I FIND IT EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO BELIEVE THAT THE ENTIRE LIGHTING FAILS, BECAUSE OF A BAD HEADLIGHT, LET ALONE ADD IN THE ATTEMPT TO SWITCH ON THE HIGH BEAMS AND THE ENTIRE DASH LIGHTS GO OUT. WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET THE CAR TO A DEALERSHIP YET DUE TO SCHEDULING.
