    I have the same problem with my 2004 crew cab tacoma. I have it at the shop now. the button that works the brightness has a component in back of it that controls the lights coming on and the brightness. It was bought brand new, ordered the part and guess what.... its still not making the lights on dashboard work??? The technician is scratching his head and cannot figure out what is wrong. So far I am at close to 150.00 for the trouble. I was using a flashlight to see at night. batteries might have been cheaper. HELP.

Maybe your speed sensor on the transmission, or maybe even a simple ground wire if you can find it clean it up and reconnect it.

Which fuse runs the lights on the dashboard? fuel gauge and speedometer don't light up!

This is the PARK LAMP fuse . So check this out on the under side of the dash and use a nose plier to pull the fuse out to be replaced by the spare in the box.
If the fuse seems ok, then check the harness, connectors to the dashboard cluster or the lamps within the dash.

sounds like you adjusted your instrument lights. try turning the knob on the head lights to turn the lights back up. if that is not the switch, the owners manual will show you if there is a separate switch on the dashboard to adjust the instrument cluster with.
if this is helpful, please give it a thumbs up to help others.
