Re: dash and taillights not working
Inside fuse cover will tell you witch fuse is for what, if not there it should have a list in your owners manual, if there is neither one, an auto parts store may be able to tell you. Or you can test light each one, or pull one at a time out until you find the burnt one.

You need to check for a blown fuse or a bad relay. If you find a relay identified for taillights, swap it with another relay and see if the lights will com on. If they do then replace the bad relay with a new one.
yes there is definately a fuse that will control all of these, doubting a wire connection is bad, theres just too much not working. your fuse will either be under the dash, or kick panels inside, and there will also be a fuse/relay panel under the hood
My 97 Rodeo had the same problem. No Tail lights, no. Dash lights. There is also an annoying buzzer that goes with the set telling you the lights are on, there is no key in the ignition and your door is open. (you don't notice it when it's gone but you sure notice it when it's back) The Fuse (taillight Illum) was good, The Light relay under the hood was good and all bulbs were good. What fixed this problem was replacing the tail light relay which is located in a panel just to the left of the brake pedal also called the kick panel.Inside there are 3 relays. I replaced the one in the middle and got everything to work. If you need to identify the relay you can put your hand over it and then turn the lights on and off. The correct relay should click. Mine was the middle one. Hope this helps someone because it stumped me for months.
Check the fuses both in the car and under the hood as front end damage usually cuts wiring causing the fuse to blow. There is also a check relay fitted behind the panel that the boot lid hinges onto, its really a pain to find but it has a link inside which can snap in the event of a collision, you can pop a drop of solder onto it to repair it.
if taillights work but, no brake lights,
there is a little switch on the brake pedal, up under the dash. it's a cheap part at the parts store.
the flasher breaker/relay is a round part that plugs into the fuse panel. easy change
In battery junction box or the under hood fuse panel check fuse no 11(15amp),it will be at the center of the fuse box where there is 4 fuse slots but looks like only 3 fuses, if this fuse in good then you will see a relay that is shaped kinda like a cross.This is the parklamp relay which also powers the dash lights.
the relays are usually adjacent to the fuses or on rear of fuse panel relays are different coloured as to what they control and are small square boxes which have flat terminals on one side for plug into a preset circuit if you have h/book it will give the info you req or tel dealer spares dept and enquire cost//colour// location? this is a simple diy hope this helps you? ps you do not mention if license plate lights are working as these are on rear light s same circuit
