    Last night my dash lights went out. I did some search this morning and learned that the dash lights and tail lights are on the same fuse. I checked and have no tail lights. The fuse was good. I tried several fuses- no lights. I aslo checked and have no power to either side of the tail light fuse terms. What now? Does all the power go through the dimmer control switch? If yes how do I get that switch out? Thanks in advance.

    Problem fixed. It was the tail light fuse. I was just reading my fuse location diagram on the back of the cover wrong. Seems you have to read it upside down to get the correct fuse. Where it looked like the tail light fuse was second from top on right side, it was actually second from bottom on left side. Diagram has to be upside down. Very strange.
