Default I have a 2004 honda civic, while driving when i turn my headlights or a/c my gauges shut off?

then after a minute car loses power, if i hold the clutch in gauges pop up until i started accelerating.

at idle i can turn everything on brights, a/c, radio, roll up and down windows, and cant get gauges to drop, help?

That sounds like the either the battery has dead cells and can't hold a charge properly or the voltage regulator is acting up or you've bad connections or rust or corrosion in the charging system either at the battery,starter,alternator, power junction box, engine block ground, plus a loose alternator belt could cause such problems too.

First I'd check the things I've mentioned and next I'd check the common ground junction points that the dash cluster ground wires could connect up and any other devices ground junction but to me it sounds like the battery or alternator or voltage regulator is probably causing your problem.

Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way some parts stores and shops will check the charging system for free for you.
