I had the lights on my dash and tail lights go out on my 1995 Grand Am
3.1 V6. After much investigation, it ended up being that the turn
signal switch had gone bad. I got mine at Autozone - $79.99 for one
with cruise, $69.99 for one without. SW860 for the non-cruise, SW859
for the cruise version. It is sometimes referred to as a multifunction
switch - however, when I called and asked about that, it seemed as
though the parts are NOT the same (MFS was much more expensive). Make
sure you specify turn signal switch (that also controls the tail
lights, headlights, etc).
In order to replace it, you need to remove the cover around the steering column - we couldn't get the lower part of the cover off and subsequently also had to pull the steering wheel (which also meant disabling the air bag), then remove the bad turn signal switch (which also controls the headlights, parking lights, tail lights, etc), pop in a new one, put everything back together (re-enabling the airbag) and then you can enjoy a life of dash lights and tail lights once again.

Have you looked under the hood? There are more fuses under the hood. Is your dimmer turned down on your dash lights?

To isolate your problem a few questions needed.
If you hear nothing at all then you first need to figure whether it's a fuse, a relay or the wiring is bad.

Although you posted this question under a 03 VW Golf and you have a MKV. The best I can do is a MKIV set up. From the rear trunk there are access ports just for this job. The right port will be just above the light housing you will find a wire harness for the right assembly. Follow the harness and it will lead you to the assembly. Once located you can squeeze the two tabs and pull the circuit board where the bulbs are installed. Push on the bulb and twist anti-clockwise then pull out of the socket.
The left should be the same procedure and it is located behind your audio components.
NOTE: It's a good idea to wipe your hand and the glass bulb, leaving oily residue will cause early bulb failure once in operation.
