Re: lights not working inside dash
Can be caused by bad rheostat. if you have had the trim out you might wanna make sure its plugged in all the way or that you dont havve the connectors swapped. these are not idiot proof there might be 2 connectors and only 1 is used.

what kind of vehicle is this? very important detail. alot of vehicles have multiple bulbs behind the instrument panel. if these bulbs burn out you have to remove the panel and replace the burnt out bulbs.
check your dash light dimmer switch. it is usually by the headlight switch, it might of gotten bumped accidently. if this doesn't fix your issue then i need to know if all dash lights are out or just the ones in the instrument cluster.
Turn the light switch on and check your tail lights. Back then the tail and dash lights work on the same circuit inside the headlight switch so if one was out so was the other. If this is the case you need a new headlight switch. If not, there should be a fuse in your panel marked "instr". that's for the dash lights. Hope this helps.
If you have a push/pull type headlight switch just turn the knob clockwise (with the lights on) to brighten the dashboard lighting. It is designed this so that you can control the brightness of the dash in darkness.
Someone might have done some work on the wiring and got things reversed, the only option for you is take it back to the dealer and show them whats wrong and it should be under factory warranty take it to a dealer they may fix it for free.
First, your instrument panel lights. Make sure to check the knob on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel which controls
the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Push the knob to get it to pop out. Turn the knob to adjust the brightness.
If that is not the problem, go to your fuse boxes. Check those in the interior fuse box (left kick panel, below the dash--fuse chart on the cover) and those in the engine compartment fuse box (far upper left as you face the car). If, after you replace anything that has blown, it blows again, that would suggest a short somewhere in the system. If you don't find any blown fuses (and I think you will) then it's time to go to the light bulbs. The tail light bulbs are accessed from inside the trunk. The license plate bulbs are just above the license plate and are accessed by removing two screws that hold the fixture in, then taking off the click plate and removing the bulbs. Hope this is of some help.
