First check to make sure you do not have the dash light dimmer control turned all the way down.
If that is not the problem, check to see if you have any tail lights. If the tail lights are also not working, check the tail light fuse. If you find that the fuse is blown, you need to find out WHY. Something has overloaded the circuit and caused it to blow. Replacing the fuse without correcting the circuit fault that caused it to blow will only result in another fuse blowing.
If you do not have the dimmer control turned down and the tail lights are working, then you probably have a bad headlamp switch (the dimmer control is built-in to the headlamp switch and can only be fixed by replacing the whole unit.)
If its like my 1999 Lumina, its on the end of the dash on passenger side. Open pass. side front door, look at the end of the dash & you should see a little door that says "FUSES" on it. Grab the tab at the bottom of the little door & pull out. And Ta da, there they are!
You probably have an open/blown tail/park lamp fuse. The dash light fuse gets power from the tail/park lamp fuse, so when you can't see your dash lights, you'll get the vehicle looked at and find you have no park/tail lamps either. It's a safety feature because otherwise you may never know your running lights are not working.
Check your park/tail lamp fuse.
Check your fuse for your tail lamps. GM runs the dash, park, side marker tail and clearance lamps through the same fuse. This way, if the fuse does blow, you know you have no lights, except head lights. Please read your owner's manual for your vehicle. It should tell you this.
