Hello if the dash lights and heater lights and light for the shifter is not working the dimmer swich is bad that makes the lights dime for from bright to low change that and that should fix the problem the swich is on the left hand side of the dash
now on the spark plug covred with oil on top change the valve cover gasket if it looks like its leaking and change all the spark plugs, now if your car smokes when it is running and if you see blue smoke from the exhaust you have bad rings

I had a 94 nissan altima, If anything powered is not working there is a good chance that the quick connect clip in the drivers side door is loose or off completely. If this is the case, you'll just have to remove the drivers side door panel and reconnect the clip, but before you do that i recommend you check your fuse box. The reason I mentioned the clip is because mine fell off from time to time.
The headlamp bulbs in these vehicles have 2 filaments- one for high beam and one for low beam.
Remove the bulb- being careful not to touch the glass part (oils from your skin can get on the glass and can actually cause hot spots and shorten the life of the bulb). You can see there are 3 wires in the connector. One will be ground. Using a test light, hook the clip to the poistive battery terminal and touch the pointed end to the metal contacts for each wire in the connector. One should complete the circuit and light the test light- ground is ok then. Now put the clip of your test light on the negative battery terminal. Turn the headlight switch on- high beam. Touch the point of test light to the terminals again and one should light- that's ok. Now make sure that the last wire completes a circuit when the headlamps are on low beam. If this checks out, look at the bulb and see if one of the filaments is broken. If your electrical checks aren't ok, check fuses- these are most likely ok, leading to a headlamp switch.
