Both are separate fuses, check them first. Dash lights are controlled threw the dimmer switch. Park lights threw the turn signal switch. If you have front marker lights, then the rear is a ground problem. Ground is at the body, in the back, on the drivers side. If no marker lights at all , replace the turn signal switch. If the fuse is good for the dash, replace the dimmer switch.
You probably already checked this but the simplest solution is the control used to turn on the interior lights and to dim your dash lights. It is a dimmer switch to the right of your headlight switch. If it is turned all the way down then you would have no dash lights and no headlight chime. Turned all the way up it turns on your interior lights. If this isn't your issue and if no fuses are blown then try to turn the dimmer switch all the way up with your headlights on. If the dash lights come on with the interior lights then your switch is fried and you may have a short in the interior light circuit.
check the instrument panal fuse. if ok check and be sure if tail lights and etc are working.if they are working and still no panal lights, it maybe there is no power going through dimmer switch. see if power is going to switch. if not coming out of switch it is bad. the wheel where you dim the lights has a rheostat inside and it may have given out.Check your headlight switch. Sometimes the switch goes bad and the dash lights won't light. Replace the switch for the fix. if not the dimmer switch is bad.
I could be the 'insturment' or 'LPS' fuse or simply the dimmer switch. It isn't uncommon to mistakenly hit the dimmer switch at turn off the dash lights. First check to see if the dimmer switch isn't turned down. Then check the fuse. If these two are good, I would suspect the dimmer switch is the issue.
Check your fuses. The dash lights are on a different fuse. Also check dimmer switch. If its not one, then it is the other. Try working dimmer switch quickly back and forth( with the lights on when it's dark so you can see if they come on).
If the lights in the dash do not work, do the parking lamps work?
If so, the fuse is good, as they both share the same fuse.
What you have, is possibly a malfunctioning dashboard dimmer switch; the round knob on the lower side of the dash. It may be turned down, or it has internally failed. To check it, simply use a 12 volt test lamp, or a volt-meter. Unplug the dimmer switch, and see if there is 12 volts in one of the two wires at the connector. If you have power, and the stwich is turned up, you have a bad dimmer switch.
Is it the lights or the LEDs? If it's the lights, check the fuse first. If the fuse is good, check the dimmer switch. Do the other lights inside dim? If no replace dimmer. If yes, then you can remove the dash cluster from the dash and replace the lights. They are installed in the back of the cluster and are very cheap.
there is also a relay to delay the interior lights that could have failed. I would check the dash light dimmer first though.. as Waynerd suggests , someone may have turned it up and engaged the switch to turn the interior lights on that way... The door switches are grounds too... and could have rested to the point of non-contact I suppose. I'm with wayneard though , on the check the switch on the dash...
